The Tacoma College Support Network is dedicated to increasing the number of TPS graduates, especially students of color and those impacted by poverty, who enroll in right-fit colleges or technical schools and boosting postsecondary completion rates.


College & Career Toolkit

Graduation, college, and work may seem far away, but this is the best time to start and make sure that you are on track to graduation.

Set your sighs on future college and career goals and take important steps toward preparing for your future beyond high school.

Regardless of which path you choose, junior year is the time to begin the conversation about your options and plan your next steps.

Now is the time to finalize plans and meet deadlines for the transition to college, technical school, apprenticeship, military, or career.
