Career Planning

Career planning is an important part of the high school student's educational experience. Students are encouraged to meet with their counselor to discuss career planning, and to utilize the resources available in the Career Center. A student who has knowledge of the world of work, and a career to strive for, can make the most of their high school experience. They will be able to customize their course load to best assist them in attaining their career goals after graduation. The websites below will help students to research different careers and define their career goals.

Naviance, a web-based planning and advising system, is an extremely helpful tool that will assist students towards college and career readiness. A thorough college search engine is an integral part of Naviance. Colleges can be easily compared, and detailed information on programs, majors, demographics and other specifics are readily available. A college admission scatter graph will allow you to understand where you stand compared to other students when reviewing specific colleges. Parents and students will have an opportunity to navigate through important data related to the college exploration process. Parents and students will be assigned a registration code. The guidance team will assist you every step of the way on this exciting and rewarding educational journey.
