Proviso West High School Career Center Helps Prep Students for their Futures

Proviso West High School is pushing academic excellence, promoting student achievement, and working to increase student support through its college and career center.

Proviso West’s college and career center is designed to provide resources for students and parents in all phases of the post-secondary planning process.  It is located on the first floor in room D103. If you walk by at any time of day, you will see students, teachers, and the career center counselor engaged in dialogue that helps students chart a course for their futures.

“The career center is a great option for us,” said Maria Gonzalez, a Proviso West senior. “It’s good that I can come in here and look for scholarships and get an idea of what my college options are. This place is handy, and it gives me all of the information I need.”

The career center counselor, Ms. Rodriquez, agreed. Students can use the career center to research financial aid and scholarship opportunities, college entrance requirements, military careers, vocational programs and much more. The center is even equipped with a career inventory program that allows students to gauge their career interests. Each month the center has representatives from various colleges and universities come in and speak with students. Parents can even contact the career center for guidance on helping their students excel.

“Proviso West students are very fortunate to have this college and career center at their disposal,” said Ms. Rodriguez. The Proviso West college and career center is a wonderful place for students because it provides them with the opportunity to explore different careers and colleges. We are here to help them gain important information about what it takes to succeed after high school.”

In addition to working with students daily, the career center also hosts a number of events each month for Proviso West parents and students.
