College and Career Readiness

  • In today’s knowledge economy, postsecondary education is both more valued and more necessary than ever before. Achieving national attainment and economic goals will require that all high school graduates (including GED and other high equivalency holders) are properly prepared for at least some postsecondary education and/or training. Efforts are underway nationally aimed at elevating high school graduates’ readiness for postsecondary education and improve their job prospects.
  • Being college- or career-ready means that a high school graduate has the English and math knowledge and skills needed to succeed in credit-bearing courses in a college or university or in the postsecondary job training and/or education necessary for their chosen career (i.e. technical/vocational program, community college, apprenticeship or significant on-the-job training).
