College & Career Center

Welcome to Mead High School’s College and Career Center’s website! The College and Career Center is an extension of Mead High School’s amazing team of counselors. Our goal is to support the mission of the school and assist students in developing a High School & Beyond Plan that will help guide and prepare them for their postsecondary aspirations. The postsecondary aspirations may include pathways for application to four-year colleges or universities, two-year community or technical colleges, apprenticeship programs, industry standard certificate programs, military training, or on-the-job training. Our mission is to make sure that EVERY student that graduates from Mead High School has support and a plan for what they want to do next.

The College and Career Center is your resource for:

  • Career exploration and research
