What does it mean to be college and/or career ready?
Our Bulldogs will have the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful in any post-secondary option they choose. They will learn to effectively communicate, develop informed arguments, analyze information and data, collaborate, present information, and use research to make informed judgements. In addition, they will learn time management, study, critical and analytical thinking and reading skills, and preparation for high stakes tests and exams.
College and career readiness takes the form of many options at DHS: Career and Technical Education (CTE), Dual Enrollment, Advanced Placement and the IB Diploma Programme.
Students can earn a college and career readiness credit the following ways:
Students who participate in these programs can earn college credit and show potential colleges/universities that they can manage a rigorous course load, a necessary component of post-secondary success.
All Bulldogs who earn their CCR (college/career readiness) point will receive an honor cord to wear at graduation!
