Welcome to the College and Career Office at HSLPS!
"Let's Help You Plan for Tomorrow, TODAY!"
The College and Career Office is a safe space where students can seek guidance regarding postsecondary goals and academic support. The goal is to provide a welcoming, inclusive, productive, and supportive learning environment. We want to develop well-rounded, successful, and responsible students with the intention that all students achieve their potential and become independent lifelong learners.
When applying to college, students at HSLPS receive much support from the College and Career Office and Peer Forward Leaders. All students at HSLPS are college-bound. Meetings about college begin early in a student's Freshman year when Mr. Brens, alongside the School Counselor, starts working with students to build awareness about college and how to take action early in their high school career to help secure their future.
This office is in room 423, where you can find Mr. Brens, our College and Career Advisor, who will work one-on-one or in groups to guide students through their college process. This office also provides a workspace for students with computers and access to other college resources.

Peer Forward maximizes the power of positive peer influence to transform students' lives in low-income communities by connecting them to higher education and careers. There is a chasm between the desire for degrees and the opportunity for low-income students to get them. By empowering students (Peer Leaders) to help themselves and their fellow students persist in and through higher education, Peer Forward dramatically improves postsecondary success at our partner schools, narrowing the higher education gap and launching generations toward career success and community leadership.
What Is a Peer Leader?
The influential student leaders are at the heart of our mission, activating higher education success in their fellow students. Peer Leaders influence their peer group, including all academic abilities and activities. Peer Forward trains and supports these student teams, who bring energy and determination to guide their peers on the path to success in higher education.
If you are interested in becoming a Peer Forward Leader, please contact Mr. Brens (Peer Forward Advisor) at email@example.com
