Programming

It is never to early to start thinking about future plans or goals after high school. While some will choose the path to college, others will navigate their way into the workforce or military. There is no wrong decision when choosing a path. The most important aspect is to have a plan, goals, a journey in mind that leads to success for all students.

UITC has partnered with Polk Community Foundation to provide resources, information, mentorships and programs designed to help students as they prepare for their future beyond graduation.
