Guiding Students on the Path to Achieving Big Dreams

More than 740,000 job openings are coming to Washington state. Most will be filled by workers who have a post-high school credential, such as a degree, apprenticeship, or certificate. Washington students have questions about how they can best set themselves up for success after high school. Planning and taking action through middle and high school will support students on their path to fulfilling their career dreams.

Our Goal: 70% of Washington students earn a post-high school credential by age 26.

Check out our new Student Success Guide with common questions and a list of action items for students to consider in each grade level, starting in middle school. Here are three ways you can put this tool into action:

  1. Use it to guide conversations with the students in your life.
  2. Print it out and hang it up in a place where students can refer to it.
  3. Share it with the adults in your life who support and guide students.
