Career Compass of LA works year round with the ninth through twelfth grade students at Central High School…enlightening, encouraging, and empowering them to pursue post-secondary training.  In an effort to make the process of transitioning from high school to postsecondary a positive, seamless transition and make a post-secondary education accessible to all, Career Compass provides workshops that address age appropriate topics concerning what it really takes to obtain a post-secondary education. These workshops, along with the Career Compass senior program, which involves weekly one on one college and career coaching to all seniors at the high school, were first implemented at Central High School during the 2007-08 school year.

Student in grades nine through eleven participate in seminars in the fall and spring.  This year, in an effort to increase college awareness on campus, students are being encouraged to wear t-shirts from their favorite colleges on the day of their fall Career Compass seminar. Career Compass coaches and the administration, guidance department, and faculty of Central High School are working hand in hand to create a college going culture at Central High School.
