College & Career Planning

Information & Resources for THS Students and their Parents

Tremper High School’s College and Career Center is designed to provide resources for students and parents in all phases of the post-secondary planning process. Our Center is located in the counseling office. Students are welcome to come into the Center before and after school and during their lunch periods.

During the school year we will have college representatives visit our school. Students can sign up to meet with those representatives by receiving a pass in the Counseling Office.

We believe that the post-secondary planning process is a major step in each student's life.
