Student Success Programs
College and Career Planning
We Help Students Prepare for Their Future
The entire planning process for a post-high school career, whether that includes college or not, is especially critical for a student who has struggled in the past. We help students plan for a future they can attain and feel good about, which helps motivate them in their current studies. Our students attend technical colleges, join the military, and work toward career areas of interest.
It’s important to note that our students work collaboratively and gain valuable 21st-century skills to better prepare for college and a career in our increasingly digital world.
Virtual classroom sessions include one-to-one student–teacher meetings and live instructional sessions. Heron Virtual Academy of South Carolina (HVASC) combines online teaching techniques with experienced certified teachers to prepare students for post-graduation success.
Our program offers impressive resources for college and career planning.

A Focus on Career Planning
Whether students aspire to attend a four-year college or are focused on a more immediate work path, we offer tools to help them evaluate their own strengths and interests and explore career directions that are both satisfying and rewarding.

- Set short- and long-term education goals to match career interests
- Learn how to be successful on the job
We believe that with this kind of personalized guidance and support, we can help students achieve their dreams and succeed.
