College and Career Center

The College and Career Center provides information and support to students to help them plan for and achieve their post-graduation goals. It offers assistance with the college application process. It also provides opportunities to meet with representatives from colleges and universities; trade and apprenticeship programs; police and firefighter cadet programs; and other post-secondary opportunities. College and Career Center offerings during the school day are open to juniors and seniors with the permission of their teachers.

Elizabeth Levenson is the College and Career Center Coordinator. She is starting her 8th school year at Jackson-Reed High School. She has held several roles at Jackson-Reed, but the common thread among all of them is that she loves helping students. She was an English major at Cornell University, where she learned research and writing skills, and before coming to Jackson-Reed she worked as a copyeditor and proofreader. She is excited to help students with their college and career search--likely the biggest research project they have worked on in their lives so far. She works closely with the 12th grade counselors.
