Career Planning

Career Planning for HHS Students

An important resource for students to utilize in career planning is the Career & Educational Planning Guide. Upon entry into high school, every student is asked to prepare a Personal Plan of Study, found on page 24 of the C&EPG. The first step is for the student to determine a Career Path in which she/he is most interested. On pages 10-23 of the C&EPG, information can be found about Career Paths, related occupations, and possible high school courses that are good preparation for the various Career Paths. The second step is for the student to select a Personal Plan of Study of coursework that might best prepare the student for her/his chosen Career Path while also fulfilling the requirements for graduation (see HHS graduation requirements on page 5 of the C&EPG). The high school counselors are available to discuss career planning with any student or parent.
