My Life Plan

My Life Plan is a post-secondary planning graduation requirement for the class of 2010 and beyond.  In middle school, students will learn how to make successful transitions, explore careers, and make academic plans based on possible career paths. As 9th and 10th graders, students take inventories and surveys related to self-exploration, encouraging them to think about their interests,  personality, and how these aspects all relate to the world of work.  As 11th and 12th graders, students transition to actually forming and executing a plan, ranging from career and college searches to college and job applications.

My Life Plan asks the following questions:

  • Who am I?
    • Assessing and reflecting on
      •  Interests
      •  personality
      •  Learning styles
  • Where am I going?

  • Researching and applying for college
  • Financial aid and scholarships
  • Development and maintenance of skills
  • Personal and professional application of skills
