Assessments This Quarter

Students take the Future Plans Career assessment which identifies their strengths, interests, personality and work values and then explore careers that are a fit for them. Each student meets one-on-one with a career coach to discuss their results and potential career paths with the end-goal of developing a career plan. Below is a snapshot of schools who completed this process and the number of students who received career guidance.
