(NECN: Alysha Palumbo) - More and more these days students are faced with the daunting task of planning out their career path at a young age.

It’s a career path that could come with a hefty price tag.
And that has many considering different options that are yielding plenty of success stories

For students faced with planning out their future -- and their finances -- as young as middle school these days, some are looking for ways to avoid being burdened with debt from student loans after college, and landing a good paying job as soon as possible.

One avenue many teens are taking is vocational schools -- and you might be surprised how much these schools have transformed themselves since you were in high school.
