Career Center

Welcome to the Central Campus Career Center
The Central Campus Career Center is available to MCHS students and their parents to assist them in preparing for life after high school. Choosing a career path can be a difficult decision. When students have some idea of the type of career they are interested in, it helps determine a college major or type of school would be best suited to accomplish their goals. This is a decision-making process through which students assess their strengths and preferences to make informed choices. Students can use the Career Center for all aspects of post-secondary planning, such as, college and career research, assistance with college applications, learning about the financial aid process and scholarships. College representative visits are also done through the Career Center.

A student can use the Career Center by making an appointment with the Career Center supervisor. Appointments can be made throughout the day and will be given on a first come, first served basis and will be scheduled during a student’s resource if possible. If a student would like to attend a college representative presentation, the student must see the Career Center supervisor for a pass.
