"The Future Belongs To Those Who Prepare For It Today" 


The North Point High School College & Career Center is the main source of information on the college process and career planning. Students can research information about careers, colleges, universities, technical schools, apprenticeship programs, military service, volunteer and/or job opportunities, financial aid and scholarships. Throughout the school year activities and informational programs are planned for students and several evening workshops are scheduled for parents.

The College & Career Center Newsletter is published monthly with important information on upcoming events, colleges, careers, apprenticeships, and scholarship opportunities.
