College and Career Center

 
 Welcome to the Mira Costa High School College & Career Center! 
 
The CCC looks forward to working with you as you begin your journey of college selection and admission. Our goal is to make this process manageable and understandable for you and your family. We seek to provide both students and parents with the best information on college choices and admission requirements to aid in the application process. The College and Career Counselors work closely with students and encourage them to discover their interests, explore possibilities, and take ownership of their college application process. Ultimately, we seek to support students in their effort to identify and enroll in the college that is the best fit for them. We provide comprehensive college and career counseling services for all Mira Costa High School students in grades 9-12. Our curriculum is comprised of grade appropriate content delivered systemically through individual counseling, small group activities, and classroom guidance. All MCHS students are provided access to college counseling presentations and workshops, and are encouraged to use the office as a resource throughout the college search, application, and selection process. MCHS students attend diverse and reputable institutions both in the United States and abroad, ranging from small private liberal arts colleges to large public universities and our comprehensive program is designed to support students through that journey to post-secondary success. We have compiled some great resources for students and families to learn more about the college process. Use this website as a starting place and a reference guide, but remember, meet with your counselors regularly and take ownership of the process.
