Edison CEEB CODE (College Test): 470052
The College and Career Center is a service of the Student Services Department. The College and Career Career Center provides a framework of career awareness, career exploration, and career preparation activities for students to make the essential connection between school and career. They are prepared for this transition by understanding self and others, exploring occupations, making decisions, acquiring work skills and planning for life. The success of this transition depends on the cooperative effort of students, parents, teachers, counselors, and the community.

The College and Career Career center is open to students during Eagle Time, lunch and after school. Parents are also encouraged to make an appointment to visit.
Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to attend college visits in the College and Career Center. College representatives inform students about the school's admissions process and deadlines, campus life, housing, majors available and scholarships. Students have the ability to ask questions and in most cases meet the person who will read their applications in the future.
These sessions are approximately 30 minutes and are all held in the College and Career Center, unless another location is specified. College visits are updated regularly in Family Connections (through students' Blackboard accounts), COLLEGE tab under "upcoming college visits".
Students should sign-up for the visits on-line, print the confirmation page, and ask their teacher to be excused 24 hours in advance of the visit. The confirmation page will serve as the student's pass and it must have a teacher's signature in order to attend the visit. Please note that is always the teacher’s decision to allow the student to miss instructional time to attend one of these sessions. Students are responsible for any work missed while out of class.
