College Preparation

A post-secondary education, whether from a trade school, a technical college, community college or four-year university, opens doors and opportunities for everyone. We believe that the pursuit of higher education shouldn't be limited by anything other than your own determination.

Project Discover Students Touring Western Carolina University


We've pulled together a number of resources that will aid you throughout your transition from high school to a post-secondary education. Whether you're preparing for the SAT or ACT or perhaps simply beginning your search for what option is best for you.

Curious about what career paths best fit your personality or want to explore careers by different categories? Take the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory or a Career Interest Test to see which jobs best fit your personality.
