The Newport High School College and Career Center provides students and families expert guidance and access to current information and resources on college and career planning.

Offering a variety of services from registration for WANIC career courses and resume workshops to college visits and scholarship information, we will guide you as you plan for your future.

Finding a well-suited path toward your future and checking off all the necessary preparations is a four-year process. Students should begin in 9th Grade to visit the College & Career Center early and often.

No student should decide that college is out of reach or not for them until they work with us.

We have special expertise to help students whose families attended college outside the United States or students who hope to be the first in their family to attend college. 

We can help students start with exploration and information. Then we will guide them through the steps necessary toward their dreams.
