Welcome to the UHS CCMR Center
WHAT IS CCMR?
College, Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) is about preparing students for life after graduation. It is made up of curriculum, resources, programs and activities that help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce. CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of UCISD and is supported by state guidelines, partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.
HOW DO WE PREPARE YOUR CHILD?
CCMR is important from elementary to graduation. Our academics are structured to prepare students for advanced learning after high school. We provide opportunities for students to gain college and career readiness through our dual credit, Advanced Placement, Early College High School and Career & Technical Education programs. These opportunities allow students to discover and plan for their future.
WHAT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE?
The CCMR Center has resources available to help students with college and career planning. Mrs. Brewer is available by appointment for individual advising with students and families. In addition, she offers monthly college/FAFSA nights. Families and students can come and receive assistance with their college application process, scholarship applications and completing the FAFSA. Mrs. Brewer has multiple resources available for students and families to assist in researching colleges, military enlistment, careers, career interest inventories and workforce information. Call or email her with any questions or schedule an appointment to meet with her individually.
