Just a year ago, Marco Ramos candidly acknowledges, he "had nothing planned out" for what he would do after graduation from Nathaniel Narbonne High School. When he heard about a new academic program opening at the Harbor-area campus, he applied, mainly because it included a job four afternoons a week. But now, after spending the past few months in the school's fledgling Human Services Academy, Marco is preparing for college, his sights set on a career as a juvenile probation officer.
