College & Career Center

College/Career Information Coordinator (CCIC): Mrs. Latasha Kelly

The Paint Branch High School Career Center is designed to help students explore areas of interest as they prepare for their future endeavors. This helps students understand the relationship between what they are learning in high school and other experiences to their post high school choices in business, the military or further educational opportunities. The extensive array of information available in the Career Center is intended to be used as an adjunct to the curriculum for all grade levels. Guest speakers and college representatives are frequent visitors to the Career Center. 

The Career Center offers information about careers and colleges including: college majors, essays, and applications; financial aid; scholarships; resume writing; SAT, PSAT, ACT and other tests; and much more. It houses a wide variety of books, catalogues, computer programs with specialized guidance material, test registration forms, videos and other information resources.
