South St. Paul Senior High School - Featured Career/College Center

From time to time, I learn about high school career and college planning centers that seem to be doing things really right.

Couple of days ago I discovered the College & Career Center at South St. Paul High School in St. Paul Minnesota.

Jenita Pace runs the center. Just from reading the site, I got the sense of how seriously Ms. Pace takes her responsibity to educate and prepare students beyond the classroom.

Ms Pace encourages students to visit the center and meet her. Here is what she says, "I want to be able to individually help you so feel free to come in and talk with me. It would be great to help you achieve your goals"!

The center is designed to help students and their parents with all aspects of college and career decision-making and planning.

Here are some of the services offered by the center:

-College catalogs and information files from numerous 4-year and 2-year colleges, universities, graduate schools and private career schools
-Information on military opportunities
-Registration forms and information for ACT, SAT and PSAT (includes practice tests)
-College, scholarship and financial aid applications
-Computers to research college and careers and apply to colleges on-line
-Direction in college selection
-Assistance in completing college applications
-Assistance in preparing resumes
-Monthly senior newsletters and bi-monthly junior newsletters
-College Information Night for students and parents in October
-Financial Aid Night for students and parents in October and Feburary
