Career Planning

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.
