Program Finder

High school students in Orange County, California, are having an easier time finding college opportunities thanks to an on-going partnership between Concentric Sky, California Community Colleges, and the Orange County Department of Education. Students in CTE (career and technical education) programs use the Program Finder to locate colleges nearby that offer programs that build on their high school studies — for example, nursing, graphic design, or accounting — then connect those students to information about what each college offers.

Program Finder aligns CTE pathways across the high school to community college segment to help students, their families, and their teachers understand the opportunities available for pursuing CTE studies in a higher education setting. Guidance counselors and college officials use Program Finder to enhance their recruitment efforts by directly connecting high schools that offer CTE related to regional college programs.
