College Career Center

The Berkeley High School College and Career Center (CCC) provides a variety of resources for college and career planning.  In the CCC, students can obtain information on:

  • College (Community Colleges, 4-year Universities, etc.),
  • Testing & Test Prep (SAT, ACT, PSAT)
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships (FAFSA, CSS Profile, Financial Aid Workshops)
  • Career Pathways and Info on Different College Majors/Minors

In collaboration with the Guidance Counselors, we strive to build a comprehensive college-going culture for all our students. In addition to scheduled appointments (one-on-one’s), students are welcome to visit the CCC during lunch or after school to utilize resources, receive tutoring, study, or even eat their lunch. While we support students of all grade levels, individual appointments are scheduled exclusively for Seniors and Juniors.
Senior appointments will open in September and continue into the Spring Semester.
Junior appointments will begin in early March.
