The Counseling Department's goal is to ensure students feel prepared and confident to enter the world of work.
We have developed a comprehensive 4-year plan to guide students through the career exploration process.
In Naviance, students can build a career exploration portfolio.
Each year, a theme (learn, discover, explore, and launch) focuses students on tasks that will best prepare them for life after high school.
