Mission and History

The goal of Career Compass is to increase the number of students in Louisiana who attend a post-secondary institution upon high school graduation (technical, community and four-year universities). Our mission is to remove the obstacles that keep students from pursuing a post-secondary education.

Career Compass was founded on the belief that all students can go to college, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. To us, "college" means a two- or four-year degree, or an advanced credential. Read more about our history below.
