After High School

  • U-46 strives to equip students with college and career readiness skills to help prepare them for a successful future after U-46. Students have a number of choices when they are in high school that will impact what they do after graduation. Parents play a pivotal role in helping them make these decisions. The first step is to be involved in the process of course selection when students are registering for classes. The courses they take will impact the direction the student will take after graduation. Parents are encouraged to help their student review options and plan accordingly.
