Putting Middle Schoolers on the Right Track

Designed to foster the knowledge, attitudes, and habits that steer 5th through 8th graders toward higher education and fulfilling careers, College & Career… Ready, Set, Go! (formerly known as College & Career Coach) connects students with Classroom Career Coaches and parent/caregiver coaches.

Building Character for Career Readiness


Character development is an important part of the lessons. The personal and professional goals students set during their activities focus on increasing resilience, willpower, grit and self-efficacy. In addition to field trips to local colleges and businesses, guest speakers from all walks of life discuss overcoming barriers on their career journey and offer useful advice as students move into high school. Lessons are hands-on and inquiry-based. Engaging formative assessments are included during each session to help ensure students are understanding the content. And our program is professionally evaluated by an outside evaluator to ensure program quality and maintain focus on continuous improvement.

Engaging Parents and Families for Student Success

Parents and caregivers commit to supporting their children’s career goals and College & Career…Ready, Set, Go! Includes parents in field trips and special Parent University classes where families can learn together how to help children meet their goals for the future. Parent opportunities can range from how to pay for post-secondary training and college to family film night where the focus is on character development and fun. We listen to families and focus on topics where they tell us their greatest needs exist.

Bring College & Career…Ready, Set, Go! to Your School

Our program currently operates in six schools  Rosary Cathedral School, Queen of Apostles School and Discovery Academy, Horizon Science Academy, Wildwood Environmental Academy and Summit Academy. Three coaches lead 5-8th grade classrooms twice per month to implement our curriculum which has been adopted from two evidence-based Career Readiness curricula, R Rules and Get Ready. Activities focus on problem solving, critical thinking and developing social-emotional skills needed for high school and career readiness.

We adapt materials to accommodate the specific needs of your school’s children, calendars and Ohio Academic Content Standards for social studies, English Language Arts, mathematics and science. R Rules is aligned to components from High Schools That Work, GEAR UP, the American School Counselor Association Model, 21st Century Skills, and academic and vocational standards.
