Destination Graduation and Beyond
Whether students are headed for college, the armed forces or direct into the workforce, CCISD provides a practical toolkit of resources and events for future alumni to be prepared for what’s on the other side of the graduation stage.
CCISD provides the following events and resources that work together to better equip students and families for success in life:
Every year, CCISD experts lead a virtual live tutorial on all things related to the college entrance process. Sessions range from guidance on the college entrance essay and admission testing to support through the Common Application and Apply Texas process.
This annual forum provides guidance from experts on seeking financial aid for college or career school, from applying for scholarships to submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application.
In addition to exemplary JROTC programming at CCISD schools, the District welcomes all branches of the military to share information on serving in the armed forces and associated benefits including tuition assistance.
Through the annual College and Career Fair, students and guardians have the opportunity to meet and hear first-hand from more than 300 colleges and universities and explore the right college fit. Armed forces representatives are also on-hand as well as professionals representing a variety of career options.
College Readiness and Entrance Exams
Students are encouraged to take college entrance exams beginning in their junior year. The SAT and ACT are universally accepted college entrance exams for all colleges. Students may take the SAT and ACT as many times as they wish to improve on scores. Colleges will consider the student's highest score. The TSIA2 is another college entrance exam option for students interested in enrolling in public colleges and universities in Texas. The TSIA2 is usually taken during the senior year if TSIA exemption requirements have not been met with an ACT or SAT score.
