K-6 Student Career Planning
It’s important a child gets to know him or herself by asking questions. Allowing youngsters to identify their values, interests, skills, and personal traits set the stage for successful K-6 student career planning. Once a student’s innate interests begin to surface, identifying skills that can support a rewarding career becomes easier and allows us to give your child a tailored direction.
Our administration in Chandler, AZ, knows what it takes for students to succeed beyond high school. Whether it be college, a trade profession, the military, or a career, our K-6 student career planning combines intuition, real-world opportunities, and individualized challenges to make achievement inviting. Exposure to different careers and simply figuring out what you want to do is important for kids to understand how to get from point A to point B.
Career guidance and counseling for students is always one email or 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. All while completing the required ACT or SAT testing, submitting applications, and pulling it all together!
Our team will help students realize their potential throughout this process and be there to celebrate their milestones.
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.
