Career Planning for High School Students
Our Academic Deans know what it takes for students to succeed beyond high school whether it be in college, trade profession, military, or in their careers. Once enrolled at Skyline Prep High School, all teens are introduced to what career planning for high school students looks like. We want your child to have an early edge on self-reflection, goal setting, building relevant skills, the college application process, and more.
Our high school guidance counselors are always just an email or a phone call away to help navigate college applications, offer advice on college and career choices, or be a listening ear.
Preparing for your future is a daunting task and must be planned carefully if you want to be successful. There are basic steps to help students plan their future. Along with working hard to get the grades necessary in academic courses, part of these steps include evaluating what you enjoy, where you would like to live, how you would like to contribute in life, what kind of civic contribution you can make, completing required ACT or SAT testing, completing applications and pulling it all together!
Our teams help students realize their potential throughout this process and are there to celebrate their milestones. Skyline Education fosters a personal, driven approach with career planning for high school students because we want to see every teenager in Phoenix, AZ, succeed.
Five Steps to Career Planning
Reflection and Self-Evaluation –The first step in career planning should be to gather information about yourself to assist in deciding on a career. Contact the Academic Dean.
Exploration –The second step is to explore and research your options. Exploring takes your self-assessment a step further by looking at your personal interests, skills, values, and work-life needs and narrowing down areas of possibilities.
Decision-Making and Goal Setting –After having completed your self-assessment and explored your options you should be ready to make some career decisions. The question now is how you will decide.
Gaining Experience –Career related experience can help you develop the skills, abilities and knowledge to solidify your career goals.
Implementation –This is the step in the process where you implement what you have learned and move forward towards a new job or more advanced education. You should also continue to evaluate your options and adjust as needed.
