Elementary and Middle school are foundational years for building a student's postsecondary awareness. In grades K-8, Baltimore City Public Schools focus is on developing the college and career exposure of our young people and helping them learn about their personal strengths and interests that will lead to their success.
Every student in grades K-8 will have an individual postsecondary learning plan. With every 6th grader going on a college tour, every 7th grader taking part in a CTE tour, and every 8th grader experiencing a job shadow.
The following tools and activities are resources to support the development of each student's individual postsecondary learning plan.
High school is the launch pad into postsecondary pathways and adulthood. Whether you decide to go to a two- or four-year college, an apprenticeship program, training program, the military, or directly to work, having a plan that is passion aligned and informed is a sure way of ensuring persistence, completion, and success.
