Career development rarely takes a straight, predictable path. College? Work? Military? A combination with twists and turns along the way? Wherever you are in your career journey, whether just starting out, starting over, or checking out the forks in the road somewhere in the middle, what you need are options, resources, and support. TCS is proud to provide our students with all three.

Bridging Readiness After Graduation (BRAG) was established to provide work-based learning opportunities for seniors to support the development of workplace readiness skills. Students are given career assessments to help them discover their interests and strengths, then they are assigned to worksite placements in the community during the second semester of their senior year, gaining experience in fields that match up with their personal profiles.
Year 13 is a unique career mentoring program for seniors. The program extends beyond graduation to help students transition successfully to life after high school, whether that be college, vocational/technical education, the military, or the workforce.
The program begins the second semester of senior year when a student is matched with school and community volunteer advisors who participate in relationship building and college and career readiness activities throughout the semester. After graduation, the advisor continues to communicate with the graduate periodically, providing encouragement, support, and resources as the student embarks on their path.
