Services

The Justice HS Career Center provides students with information to help them explore post-secondary and career options, make realistic career decisions, and establish career goals. Students are sent frequent updates via email concerning college fairs, application and testing deadlines, and scholarship opportunities.

Students are free to stop by the Career Center (located in the library) between classes, during lunch, after school, and at any time with a pass from their teacher. Students may also schedule an appointment time during the school day with a teacher's permission.

As you look forward to your senior year, your counselors and the Career Center Specialist would like to be as helpful to you in the college search and application process as possible. We can provide you with more help and assistance if you familiarize yourself with the process, and do your best to meet the deadlines, and discuss your decisions and game plan with us early in the school year. Remember you cannot be accepted to college if you don’t apply. So avoid the rush, avoid the tension and try to start early.
