    The SPS strategic plan outlines the goal of all students prepared for college, career and life. Our goal is college for all students, because we believe that education beyond high school is essential for success in the 21st century. We define college as any degree or certificate granting post-secondary institution or apprenticeship program.

    College Readiness

    There are many steps students should take to be prepared for college. No matter where a student is in the college admission process, the information below will help them prepare in terms of academic preparation, admissions process, and personal and family finances.

    Career Readiness

    Career preparation is a combination of course work, to gain knowledge in a particular career interest area, and employability and self-management skills such as the use of technology, teamwork, and responsibility.

    • Internships and Work-Based Learning

    To support our students and their families in preparing for life after Seattle Schools, we use Naviance to help our students identify their strengths and goals.  We want to help our students make plans and attain their post-secondary goals.
