The heart of Career & College Clubs is a research-based,
7th – 12th grade peer-to-peer curriculum,
sequenced to ensure students graduate
career and college ready.
Career & College Clubs’ curriculum is based on college readiness standards developed from research on effective practices and vetted by educators.
The middle school program introduces students to the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in high school and beyond; while the high school program helps students master these concepts while preparing for college and career planning.
The curriculum is modular so that it can be used in any setting: during instruction time, after school, single grade level, multiple grade levels, multiple cohorts, etc., and contains hundreds of hours of activities designed to produce career and college ready high school graduates.
