Castleberry ISD is dedicated to ensuring that all Castleberry ISD students have access to high-quality pathways to career and college.  The College, Career, Military Readiness Advisor will aide students at Castleberry ISD in selecting an institution of higher education that matches their academic needs, explore career options, the type of academic and occupational training needed to succeed in the workplace, and post-secondary opportunities that are associated with their field of interest.

To help our students and families understand post-secondary educational readiness we have grouped resources for students on this page, including information on dual credit, college admission, financial aid, Career and Technical Education program, and exam preparation.

We encourage the students to explore their post-secondary aspirations and academic interests by setting goals and making the best use of the resources available to them that will position them for their future.
