College and Career Planning

We will help prepare you for wherever life takes you once you leave Ombudsman. We support the goals of all students, and we help them explore opportunities so they can develop plans for life after graduation.

At orientation, students are introduced to the Arizona Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP). ECAP charts academic and career goals and offers activities to support college and career goals. Students and their families receive a monthly planner to prepare for – and complete – milestones such as registering for the ACT.

Our college and career coordinators help students learn how to set and achieve goals, to keep going in courses they might find tough, and to build positive relationships with adults. Coordinators also help students identify and apply for scholarships and navigate the financial aid process.
