Dear Lancer Families, devon.png

Our College and Career Readiness team is thrilled to officially opened the La Follette College and Career Center. This center is designed to support students in their efforts to explore, plan, and succeed in their post high school plans. The center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 1st-6th period or by appointment. Since officially opening, we have already served over seventy- eighty students. Many of these visits to the center include community partners, such as college/ career reps and recruiters. 

          Along with efforts moving forward in the center, students are also working on some college and career planning within their classrooms. 9th and 10th grade students within their math course completed a career exploration lesson in Xello, while our 9th grade students reflected on their transition to high school in their English course. After experiences such as these our center is a place for students to follow up and ask more questions. Our Juniors registered for the online portion of their ACT, which opens up many online resources to prep and plan for success on the ACT. Seniors are still in the process of applications for college, military, and apprenticeships. If your student is in need of support in these areas, please remind them to utilize the Center. 

Coming up next within the center and our college and career efforts…

  • Post High School Options Fair- Dec. 11th for all Sophomores

  • ACT Prep- Juniors (ACT testing date- March 3rd)

  • Reality Day- Jan. 14th for all students in Financial Literacy classes

  • Course Scheduling Planning- Freshman- Juniors

If you have any questions on our efforts in supporting all Lancers in success beyond high school, please reach out to Mackensie Swanson, College and Career Coordinator,  via email at mmswanson@madison.k12.wi.us or phone (608)204-3602.

Happy Holidays,
