College and Career Planning

It is a goal of School District 197 to prepare all students to be career and college ready once they graduate from Henry Sibley High School. To that end, the Sibley Counseling Office offers a variety of online resources for college, post-secondary and career planning. School Counselors are also available to help with post-secondary planning. Students should visit the Counseling Office (C201) to make an appointment.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION
The District 197 School Board has set forth the minimum requirements for graduation. Simply meeting the high school graduation requirements, however, does not necessarily make a student eligible to apply for four-year colleges. Students may need to take additional courses while in high school to successfully prepare for their post-secondary transition.

COLLEGE READINESS
One of the most important steps in planning to attend a two-or-four-year college is to ensure that you are academically prepared and that when selecting high school courses you clearly understand what colleges require. We encourage all students to start planning for their life beyond high school as early as possible and take challenging coursework all through high school to maximize their post-secondary options.

CAREER READINESS
Some jobs do not require a two- or four-year degree, but many skilled jobs that pay a living wage do require post-secondary training. Students interested in pursuing a technical or vocational career should plan to complete a combination of course work and on-the-job training. We encourage all students to start planning for their life beyond high school as early as possible and take challenging coursework all through high school to maximize their post-secondary options.
