Career & College Readiness

Career Based Learning Experiences

Early Post-Secondary Opportunities

Students may participate in early post-secondary opportunities by enrolling in off-site courses at higher education institutions as allowed under state law to advance in their academic and career pathways. These opportunities may be accessed through the Start College Now program for Technical Colleges and the Early College Credit Program for UW System institutions, private non-profit higher education institutions, and tribally controlled colleges in the State of Wisconsin. Students may not participate concurrently in both the Start College Now and Early College Credit Program in the same term as defined in statute. In addition, Monona Grove High School offers several courses that are dual credit with Madison College at no cost to the student. 

Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO)

A career and technical student organization (CTSO) is an extracurricular group for students in CTE pathways to further their knowledge and skills by participating in activities, events, and competitions.

Monona Grove High School offers Skills USA, HOSA, and DECA. For more information, visit the MGHS Activities page, or click on their state websites.
