Still Exploring

Your Story is Your Strength

Before deciding on a path to take after high school, it is good to first set a vision for your future that is meaningful to you and which honors your story. Once you have a clear vision it is much easier to chart your course after graduation.

Don’t have time to go deep into each section? Not a problem. Let us cut to the chase.

Set My Vision

  • If you’re wondering if you’ve missed your chance to apply to college or a program, you haven’t! It’s never too late to set your vision and create an action plan.
  • People who can name their purpose (their why, the mark they want to make in the world) showed higher levels of physical health, brain function, and life satisfaction and lower levels of depression, anxiety, loneliness, etc.
  • When considering career direction, embrace your strengths and interests and map them to a need in the world to identify possible career paths to explore.

Chart My Course

  • Figure out what kind of degree, credential, or training you need and research the college or career programs that are still accepting applications.
  •  Create a plan for getting your degree: secure an application fee waiver (if necessary), request letters of recommendation, and complete applications for admission and financial aid.
