Preparing for Graduation


Preparing yourself for graduation is a journey that involves growing, maturing and taking on more responsibility throughout your high school career.  As you prepare for life after high school it is important to develop the self advocacy skills that will go with you whether you will be going on to college, entering military service or joining the work force.  Family and friends have guided you up to this point and now it is time for you to begin your own steps toward independence as you are becoming

an adult.


Look, listen and learn; all the information and support you need is readily available to you so take in the resources here at Southwestern High School!
