Welcome to the Office of College and Career Readiness
The Office of College and Career Readiness (OCCR) works to encourage SPPS students of all ages to understand that preparation for greatness in college, career, and/or community is achievable with the right planning, preparation, support, and accountability. SPPS students benefit from our strong school counseling program, the creation of personal learning plans (PLPs), a wide array of post-secondary partnerships and invaluable opportunities allowing them to explore career and technical education.
Students document their interests, strengths, & values and connect those to course taking plans, career development activities, and career and postsecondary education aspirations.
Saint Paul Public Schools is proud to be one of only a few urban school districts in the nation where students can earn 12 free college credits (and sometimes more) while in high school.
SPPS has partnered with TutorMe to give students free access to online tutoring services. TutorMe allows students to connect with a subject-level expert tutor at any time to get support in current classes.
