Welcome to Career Compass

No student ever says, "when I grow up, I want to be a failure." We sit with students one-on-one and show them how they can overcome the obstacles they face. Yes, you can go to college. And we can help.

We created Career Compass because as teachers we saw a huge disconnect between the information that was available to students and the ability to act on that information. We created Career Compass to bridge the gap.

Only 46% of Louisiana high school graduates enter a post-secondary school when they graduate. Only 13% will earn a 2 or 4-year degree within six years.

99% of the students who work with Career Compass applied to and/or were accepted to a post-secondary school they could successfully attend beyond high school graduation. And of that number, 80% are still attending school!
