Welcome students and families! My name is Jessica Lopez and I am the current College Adviser at Belleville High School. I am excited as I can assist and motivate students to attend a post-secondary education after graduation. College is for everyone. In fact, it's a necessity! Whether that means going to a trade/technical school, community college or a four year university this site can provide many of the resources students and parents need to know what the best fit is for each person. Do you know what you're doing after high school?
How do you get to the end of the tunnel?
PLAN, APPLY, PAY, DECIDE
Sounds super easy right? I'm here to help!
College is post-secondary education...MCAN uses the term "college" to refer to the attainment to valuable post-secondary credentials beyond high school, including professional/technical certificates and academic degrees.
College is a necessity...post-secondary education is a prerequisite to success in a knowledge-based economy. Everyone must pursue and complete a post-secondary credential or degree beyond high school.
College is for everyone...the post-secondary education attainment rates among low-income students and students of color are significantly lower than those of other students. MCAN is committed to closing these gaps. College is a public good...post-secondary educational opportunity and attainment are critical to a just and equitable society, strong economy, and healthy communities.
