Leading the Future

If it is something that they love, then we can give them those first steps to take and give them insight on what to do next. If they decide it is not for them, we can still give them the basics necessary for everyday life, no matter what path they choose to take.

High schoolers hardly know what they want to major in when they are getting ready to go to college.
