College Resources

  • SchooLinks

    SchooLinks serves as a college and career readiness platform that helps students connect their academic achievement to post-secondary goals.

    The path to college and career readiness begins with self-discovery. Through self-discovery and collaboration with parents, teachers and school counselors, SchooLinks enables students to find college and career pathways that are right for them. SchooLinks helps students explore their strengths and areas of interest, and matches those skills with college and career options.

    Students start their career and college exploration by:

    • Setting personalized goals
    • Assessing personal strengths
    • Exploring career options based on interests
    • Searching for colleges
    • Applying for scholarships
    • Tracking their admissions status

    SchooLinks helps students plan a course of action to reach their goals, find resources to prepare academically, and discover their own path. Please contact Darlene Burns at 314-729-2400, ext. 1534 or for assistance with SchooLinks.

    College Entrance

    Students interested in attending college should plan for this goal. College entrance requirements and course recommendations should be followed as much as possible. Graduation from high school does not ensure that a student has completed all courses necessary for college entrance. Each college has its own requirements. Counselors are available to help you plan your program and achieve your goals.
