What is College and Career Readiness?
A student who is ready for college and career can qualify for and succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing college courses leading to a baccalaureate or certificate, or career pathway-oriented training programs without the need for remedial or developmental coursework. However, not all the same skills are required for all students. A student's interests and post-high school aspirations influence the precise knowledge and skill profiles necessary to be ready for postsecondary studies.
