• Attending a 2-year school is a great option for students in regards to their post-secondary plans. For some students, a 4-year school is not the right fit right out of High School. For this reason, students continue to consider and attend 2-year schools (commonly known as Community Colleges). In most cases, this results in being awarded an Associate's Degree. Once completed popular options are to join the workforce or transfer to a 4-year school. 

    If you have questions about whether or not a 2-year college is the right fit for you, please reach out to your School Counselor or Mrs. Sleight, College & Career Counselor.
