                               It's later than you think!
    Whether you are a high school freshman or a first-year college or technical school student, you should be asking yourself, "Where do I want to go in life and how am I going to get there?" Whether you aspire to attend college or  technical school or if you just want to land a good job upon graduation, this website can help with making the choice.
     
    Waiting until your senior year to think about a career choice is a mistake that many students make. It takes time to explore careers, carefully select the courses you need to take, and plan for financing your post-high school training.
     
    The Career Center at South Effingham High School is the place to start. Not only is this website available to you at any time, the Media Center also has books, pamphlets, and videos that can help you with making choices and decisions that impact your future.
