The Career Assessment process provides objective information to assist the student in developing a realizable goal for their future.
Career Assessment is a service offered to students who are interested in investigating career-technical fields of study. During the Career Assessment, students complete a wide variety of activities that measure their aptitudes and define their interests. This information is then related to work and potential career technical programs which correlate with the students’ aptitudes and interests to make reasonable program choices. A comprehensive Career Assessment provides students with tools and knowledge to make informed choices regarding future educational and career plans.
