Career Center Overview
Our Career Center is located in the library complex in Room L5. From 7:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., students may explore college, scholarship, career, and employment opportunities. In addition to college reference books, catalogues and videotapes, 20 computers have access to the internet, as well as our career development software, Naviance. This software promotes an interactive process of exploring possible occupations and schools.
Career planning may begin by taking interest and aptitude tests that connect with related occupations, majors and schools. Students may listen to guest speakers who visit during lunch to talk with interested students about specific careers. Representatives from colleges across the country visit our Career Center for lunchtime and after school presentations. Students in all grade levels will spend two to four periods each year in the Career Center focusing on occupational choices, high school and college requirements, and college options and application procedures.
Applications, registration booklets, and forms are available for SAT & ACT tests, financial aid, NCAA and TOEFL. Information on available scholarships, SAT prep courses and specialized summer sessions are continually updated. Students interested in part-time employment will find job opportunities on the Job Placement Board. Community volunteer programs are also posted. Information and registration for classes offered through the Mission Valley Regional Occupation Program is available in the Career Center. Our College and Career Specialist, Mrs. Aldinger, is in the Career Center to assist students.
