College & Career Readiness 

At Pea Ridge, we strive to create a culture of College and Career Readiness. Our goal is for all students to be placed in a program of study by the end of 9th grade. By graduation, our goal is for each student to either enter the workforce or continue into higher education. We are dedicated to ensuring our students leave Pea Ridge with the hard and soft skills that will make them successful at the next level. We aim to achieve this by providing programs of study focused on post-graduation preparedness, advising, and hands-on opportunities.

Recent Events

We recently hosted our first annual College and Career Fair! Our students had the opportunity to connect with many schools and businesses, learn from industry professionals, and get their questions answered! Check out this highlight video featuring students, staff, and business professionals. Stay tuned for more CCR events and opportunities coming soon.
