Career Planning

While some Minuteman students may decide to continue on to a 2-year or 4-year college after graduation, other students may wish to start their successful careers immediately.

Our Guidance Department is here to partner with each student and their family to thoroughly prepare for either step, based on that student’s individual needs and goals.

For those students who wish to start their careers immediately following graduation, Minuteman Guidance recommends students explore the following resources:
