Middle/High School Counseling
Searching for a Career?
Our school participates in a wonderful online program called Career Cruising. Students can search for careers, hear interviews of people in those careers, check out wages, and search for colleges. They can also save information and update their personal Education Development Plan (EDP). Our Counselor will work with students to learn many aspects of the program.
The website is www.careercruising.com. Please call the counseling office to obtain the USERNAME and PASSWORD. We encourage all students to develop an EDP (Education Development Plan) and explore all the resources Career Cruising has to offer. We encourage all parents to view their student’s EDP’s online as well.
