College/Career Planning

From the moment you set foot in Tri-County on your first day of school, our faculty’s goal is to ensure you are well-prepared for a bright future. As you begin to weigh your options for life after high school, we encourage you to take advantage of the many planning resources available to you.

Those seniors planning to attend college after graduation should see their guidance counselor to ensure they are on the right track. Students whose last names begin with A-K should see Mr. Casey and students whose last names begin with L-Z should see Ms. Johannesen.
