College Career Center

2017 Berkeley High School College Fair is on Sunday April 30th.

The Berkeley High School College and Career Center (CCC) provides a variety of resources for college and career planning.  The CCC is a place where students can come to obtain information on two and four year colleges and universities, testing and test preparation, financial aid and scholarships, career possibilities and college majors descriptions.

In collaboration with the academic counselors, we continue to work on building a comprehensive college-going culture for all students. In addition to scheduled appointments, students are welcome to come to the CCC during lunch or after school to utilize the resources, get tutoring help, study, or eat lunch.  While we support all students, the majority of individual appointments are scheduled for seniors and juniors.  Senior appointments will begin in September and continue into the spring semester, and junior appointments will begin early in March.
