College and Career Readiness

Future Ready Massachusetts is a public campaign to enable communities to promote understanding and use of the various tools that will advance the college-and-career-readiness of the Commonwealth’s students.  The Future Ready campaign aims to:

  1. Increase the number of students pursuing and succeeding in college and careers, and

  2. Build community and family support for completion of a rigorous course of study and relevant experience, which offers better opportunities after high school.  

What does it mean to be Future Ready?

To be Future Ready means having the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to complete further education and training that will provide access to the career of your choice.  The three keys to achieving your goals are:

Start Now: It’s never too early or too late to start planning for your future

Aim High: Students who challenge themselves through a rigorous course of study are usually the ones who go the farthest

Look Beyond: Look outside the classroom for learning opportunities that support career pathway development
