Find your college in 5 easy steps

Options for Life After High School

Do you dream of being a pastry chef? Building cars? If you have specific career goals, you may want to consider a college that trains you in that particular area.

To prepare for some careers you may need to attend a specialized college — such as culinary college. For others, especially more technical jobs, you may need to go to a vocational-technical college. 

Accredited institutions like these prepare students for specific skill-based careers, and are known as career colleges. Career college programs generally range from two to four years, depending on the extent of training required.

While many students choose to attend career colleges, others pursue these interests at community colleges, which often have lower tuition costs. Consider which one best suits your needs as you explore your options.
