To continue preparing students for the future, schools in the St. John the Baptist Parish Public School District including LaPlace Elementary School, John L. Ory Communication Arts Magnet School and Garyville-Mt. Airy Math and Science Magnet School, visited South Central Louisiana Technical College to explore industry-based jobs.

LaPlace Elementary School student Jacoby August works on a dummy while exploring the nursing department at South Central Louisiana Technical College.

GMMS counselor Stanley Alexis said college visits are key to finding the right fit.

Visits also give middle school students a chance to talk to college students, faculty and financial aid and admission officers to learn more about their post-graduate options.
