College and Career Readiness

​The Hoboken Public School District is committed to providing a solid framework for all students to be successful in their chosen path after graduation. The vision of a Hoboken High School graduate identifies the knowledge, skills, readiness and dispositions our students should have in order to be ready to effectively navigate college, career and future opportunities. This solid foundation has positively influenced our students to undertake and take on the challenges that will globally influence their futures.

Why is it important to focus on College & Career Readiness?

The more students can connect what they are learning now to their future, the more prepared they will be for success. Through their planning and learning experiences in middle and high school, students will also learn that it is important to be ready for change, as it is likely they will have multiple careers in their lifetime.

Nearly all of our students aspire to continue their education after high school. There are, however, many different ways to pursue a post-secondary education and each have a value in the current and projected economy. Finding the right fit for each student is critical to ensure that they make a wise investment and are adequately prepared to be successful.

Students also need to understand and value their future role in the economy and know how to develop a plan to secure credentials that differentiate them from others who will be competing for the same opportunities someday. They need to know what it takes to secure and sustain employment at the time that is right for them.
