Post-Secondary Planning

There are many options available to graduates of Avon High School. While the majority of Avon students go on to colleges or universities in pursuit of undergraduate degrees directly after graduation, there are other options.  Some of these alternative paths include pursuing a trade, entering the military, taking a gap year, and studying abroad. Regardless of whether students choose to enter college directly after high school or enter an alternate path, the counselors are here to support every student.

Although the future planning process may seem overwhelming at times, it can be an inspiring time full of adventure and possibilities. There are many challenges students and parents may face along the way, so it is important to stay organized and not be afraid to ask questions. Avon has talented and supportive counselors who are ready to assist you in the post-secondary planning process. We look forward to working with you.

 ACHIEVE: AHS Internship Program

Achieve, the student internship program, enables our students to explore an area of interest outside the classroom. By helping to foster independence and decision-making skills, the program will provide students an opportunity to make a smoother transition from high school to college, the work place, or military service. Students will explore a career interest or service opportunity in a field prior to beginning formal training in their post-secondary schooling.
