College and Career Center

 

The College and Career Center (CCC) at West High School provides our Warrior community with a variety of information and resources for college and career planning. Our goal is to meet the information and planning needs for our students as they move toward graduation and beyond. In collaboration with the academic counselors, the CCC works to ensure a comprehensive college going culture for all WHS students and provides a full range of college admission information and activities including the following:

RESOURCES

The CCC provides a comfortable environment where students can come to obtain information on two and four-year colleges and universities, standardized tests and test preparation, application procedures and internships.  Students are also welcome to attend college information sessions hosted by college representatives visiting WHS during Warrior Workshop! The Center also has material on community based and national scholarships, financial aid information, as well as tools for investigating careers and/or college major planning. Students are welcome to stop by the CCC during lunch or after school to utilize the resources or may schedule an appointment should they have more than just a quick question or require additional assistance.

EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS

The CCC hosts free events for students throughout the year.  For the most up-to-date information regarding events and workshops, please refer to Ms. Torres weekly newsletter.
