Are You College and Career Ready?

Southwestern Illinois College offers initiatives and activities for secondary and postsecondary students that lead to college and career readiness and a smooth transition from secondary to postsecondary education and the work force. We partner with SWIC district high schools to develop and implement programs of study using the career cluster model that serves as a framework for counselors and parents and a roadmap for students to plan that pathway to the future. Explore our website to learn more about programs of study and how you can save time and money while pursuing a clear pathway to a career with high wages and a favorable job outlook.
