College and Career Planning

We wish to thank Mary Moore, Vocational Counselor at Brunswick High School, for her work in developing this exciting compilation of career guidance links. We have adapted her web page for access by our students at Gorham High School with her permission (May, 2003).

 Wondering what to do after high school? Plan for the future. Research a variety of postsecondary opportunities, identify sources of financial aid, prepare for the SAT's, take a look at career options and study the needs of the current labor market. The College and Career Planning website will help you find the information you need.
