All students are expected to develop and maintain a career portfolio throughout high school. The career portfolio includes resources and activities that are designed to guide students in choosing a career by considering the following: Who am I? Where am I going? and How do I get there? Many of the career portfolio activities will be completed using Naviance as a comprehensive career-readiness and college planning platform. This program is accessible in school and at home at http://succeed.naviance.com or by using the Naviance link on the drop down tab under guidance. Students log in using their Powerschool username and password. Students should follow the instructions by grade level for maintaining their career portfolio.

Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 should continue to use the success planning, career planning and college planning platforms in Naviance given their goals, interests, and needs.

Students should carefully review their high school educational plan with ongoing development of their portfolio. Students planning post-secondary education should also make progressive use of the resources in the Colleges tab.
