College & Career Center

  • Helping Cleveland High School students find success after high school! We believe there are many pathways for students to take after high school: 4-year college, community college, apprenticeship, military, and direct entry into the workforce. Every student has incredible potential; we're just here to make sure you also have a plan!

    The CCC is staffed by the CHS career coordinator, and about 40 parent and community volunteers, led by a leadership team. The career coordinator facilitates career-related learning for all students at CHS and can advise students on the following post-high school plans: apprenticeship, military, and direct entry into the workforce. The volunteer team is available to answer student questions about 4-year college and community college at

    We provide a space for college visits, career workshops, a quiet place to work, and one-on-one advising on a drop-in basis on post-high school planning. We are interested in helping students form ANY kind of plan, whether that is a 4-year college, community college, apprenticeship, military, or workforce training.  Visit the CCC website ( for more information, including CRLE opportunities, college visit dates, and scholarship opportunities.

    The CCC is open all school days from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Students, drop by anytime (unless you're in class!)

    We are located in Room 213.
