College Career and Military Readiness

College Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) is about preparing students for life after graduation. It is made up of curriculum, resources, programs and activities that help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce and begin a career. CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of our district and is supported by state guidelines, partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.

School counselors are available to answer questions and to help students get a jump start preparing for life after graduation. Additionally, at each of our MISD high schools students can visit a College and Career Readiness (CCR) Center staffed with advanced academic coordinators and advisors who can provide resources for choosing a college, mapping out your schedule, career planning, financial aid applications and more.
