The Career Center provides information for students and families about careers, colleges and universities and other training. Ms. Burtness and the Counselors assist students and their families with information about college placement testing, higher education and careers.  Ms. Burtness also assists families with all types of financial aid, including scholarships.

We look forward to working with students and families to plan for life after Hillsdale. Whether a student will attend college or a university, join the armed forces or other service organization, or begin immediately to move up a career ladder, we have helpful information. Make an appointment to meet with us if we can help you in any way.

The Counselors and Career Center are located in the administration building next to the Del Monte Street parking lot.  Come down the stairs and turn left.  The Career Center is through the first doors on your left; the Counselors are through the second set of doors.
