REALIZING FULL POTENTIAL

At Commerce, you will harness the support of family, educators, industry leaders, institutes of higher education and the community to become college and career ready, equipped with the skills, knowledge, and expertise required to succeed in work and life.

YOUR PERSONALIZED PATHWAY
