Career Life Education

View the complete Learning Standards for this course: Career-Life Education

Welcome to Career Life Education!  Career Life Education is a required course for graduation and takes the place of Planning 10. It is a ‘real life’ course, meaning less academically focused and more practical.  It will help you plan certain aspects of your life such as your future goals and dreams as well as giving you the skills to reach those goals and dreams. This course has a particular focus in blending athletic perspectives into career and post-secondary planning.

A person’s career is considered their “journey” through life, and the Career Education curriculum offers students the opportunity to pursue this journey in personally meaningful and goal-oriented ways. Career-life development with intent is the ongoing process of self-discovery, growth in competence, and learning from experiences in educational, work-related, and personal life contexts.
