The School-to-Career office is designed to help students with career pathway exploration, work and volunteer experiences, cadet teaching, internships, job shadows, business writing assistance and a variety of industry programs.

We offer the opportunity to get elective credits for paid work, volunteer work, and internships. Our partnerships include a dental program sponsored by the Central Oregon Dental Society, engineering rotations sponsored by the Central Oregon Chapter of Professional Engineers of Oregon (PEO), a health occupations rotation program sponsored by St. Charles Medical Center, The Center and Bend Memorial Clinic and Bend Surgery Center, as well as with many other members of the Central Oregon community. Click here to see a full list of our program offerings.

Come visit the Future Center located in Room C112. Here, students can work one-on-one with parent volunteers to map out a plan for post-high school education and careers. The center is an excellent resource to find information about 2 and 4-year colleges, military opportunities, gap-year programs, apprenticeships, professional technical programs, scholarships and financial aid.

We hope you will use the Future Center as your resource for what-comes-next after high school. So we can get to know you better please complete the Future Center Student Survey. Click here: Future Center Student Survey

Having access to up-to-date information such as GPA's and test scores can be helpful when wading through the college search process. We recognize that this information is confidential. Parents, if you feel comfortable having your child's information available to a parent/community member Future Center volunteer please complete the Parent Release of Confidential Information.
