College & Career Preparation

College and career preparation are very important at Venture High School.

We are confident that students who successfully complete their “Flight Plan” which includes graduation credits, a high quality portfolio of their work, and successful passage presentations (see Guidance and Self-Advocacy section), will be well prepared for college and will have the foundational skills that will lead to meaningful and successful lives and careers. 

Though college and career preparation is an important part of high school, we believe it is important to remember that the work and learning that takes place in high school is important for its own sake in the lives of the students who are experiencing it. High school students are not solely preparing for the future, they are living in the present, and having wonderful experiences.
