College & Career Center


Welcome to the College and Career Center website! 

My name is Matthew Marsolek and I would like to tell you more about what the center offers.
 
The College & Career Center at South St. Paul Secondary is designed to help students and their parents with all aspects of college and career decision-making. All students are encouraged to visit the College & Career Center and are more than welcome to seek personalized help.
 
The center can offer the following help:
  • College catalogs and information files from numerous 4-year and 2-year colleges, universities, graduate schools and private career schools
  • Information on military opportunities
  • Registration forms and information for ACT, SAT and PSAT (includes practice tests)
  • College, scholarship and financial aid applications and materials
  • Direction in college selection
  • Assistance in completing college applications
  • Assistance in preparing resumes  
 
TIPS TO HELP ME HELP YOU
Please come in and meet me. I want to be able to individually help you so feel free to come in and talk with me. It would be great to help you achieve your goals!
 
Check out the Career Board.  It's located outside the Career Center.  College visits, ACT/SAT information,job postings and financial aid information will be posted there. Check back periodically as it is updated.
Prepare for meetings.   I will be requesting appointments with each senior and junior this year to discuss their personal needs.  Please attend the appointment and bring any questions or concerns you want to discuss.
 
Provide materials well before the due date. Give me all forms (report cards, recommendations, etc.) early and all at once, if possible. Be sure to include information about deadlines. 
 
Notify me about your progress. Let me know if you are accepted by your prospective college. If you don't get in, I may be able to assist with other options that are available. 

I look forward to working with all of you and getting to know you better!
