Milwaukee Public Schools Logo: High-quality school options for 3-year-olds to high school seniors
Main Content


College is not the only option after high school and may not be the best fit for every student. However, we do encourage students to earn some form of education after high school in order to have more options in the work field.  


These options include getting a certificate or technical diploma from a two-year school, starting an apprenticeship program, or doing a public service training program. We at the College and Career Centers can help students with all of these options. Please come in and meet with an advisor if you would like to pursue one of these options, and read below for more information about each.

Technical Diploma or Certificate Programs

Apprenticeships are a way to learn a trade or occupation — from a professional in that field — by doing the job while earning a salary.

Public Service Training Programs

If you are interested in working in public service, such as being a police officer, firefighter, or postal carrier, you should consider a public service training program. This can be the first step to a career in one of these services and a way to start earning a salary right out of high school. To learn more about each, click on the links below:
