College, Career & Military Readiness

We want all students to leave Pleasanton High School with some sort of preparedness for their next chapter. In an effort to accomplish this goal, we offer TSIA testing for students wanting to go on to college, certification programs for students wishing to go straight to work, and of course signing on with one of the military branches is another avenue for CCMR.
