TUSD is holding its 2019 College and Career Fair on Monday, Nov. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Tustin High School. The 34th annual event is open to all TUSD high school students and their parents. Over 90 colleges, universities and military academies will have representatives hand out literature and answer questions about their institutions. Students and parents will be able to gather information on campus locations, curriculum, admissions requirements, tuition and living expenses. There will also be workshops on financial aid, higher education options in California and out-of-state, and NCAA eligibility. Additionally, community colleges, Coastline Regional Occupational Program (ROP) and career technical education programs will share their programs with Tustin Unified high school students.
Challenge Success at Tustin High School
The Tustin High School Challenge Success Team believes that a narrow definition of success, one which overemphasizes grades, test scores, and performance, allows little time for kids to develop the essential skills needed to become independent, ethical, and critical thinkers. Our aim is to help keep our kids in balance- Healthy, Engaged Kids.
THS CHALLENGE SUCCESS VISION
“Tustin High School will ensure that all parties are authentically engaged in challenging and purposeful learning while minimizing stress and valuing each member of the community.”
College & Career Readiness (CCR)
The CCR Academy time is dedicated to College and Career Readiness for all Tillers. For 40 minutes, twice a month, students will have the opportunity to explore their post Tustin High School plans. During this time, students will learn college and career based curriculum using our Naviance Student Program.
2019-2020 CCR Academy dates:
For log-in information, please contact Ms. Sam, at extension 87160, in the Counseling Department.
