Career Choices was the freshman course text used by Santa Barbara City College’s (SBCC) Dual Enrollment Get Focused...Stay Focused!® program. This program contributed to SBCC’s Aspen Institute award in 2013 as the #1 Community College in the United States.

In 2015, the United States Congress awarded Career Choices author Mindy Bingham a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for Innovatives Approaches to Curricula.


Over two million students have taken a freshman course using books from the Career Choices series. Today, over 450 high schools and colleges in California alone use the Career Choices series in their Get Focused...Stay Focused!® and Guided Pathways programs.


You will greatly increase the number of students who are college and career ready. For instance, Carpinteria High School increased the number of graduates who met the requirements for admission to the University of California from 24% to 47%.
