Marana Middle School - Early College and Career Readiness School

College Graduate preparing for the future Congratulations to Marana Middle School recently recognized from the Arizona College Access Network (AzCAN) as an Early College and Career Readiness School. This recognition was earned by having MMS educators complete the professional development course, College and Career Advising in the Middle Grades, made possible by the State GEAR UP grant administered by Northern Arizona University. Participants in this course were introduced to a variety of resources, both Arizona specific and national, to support their efforts in preparing middle grade students for success in secondary and post-secondary education. Those who complete the course take away ideas for incorporating college/career education into existing curricula along with activities to help students identify personal goals and prepare academic plans designed to matriculate with them to high school.
