Ideally, a career should match a person's interests, abilities, and values. The following career-planning resources can be useful in identifying possible career pathways. 

Set : Paying for College

It’s never too early to start researching ways to help pay for school. There are a wide variety of websites that help students narrow down their search for grants and scholarships. While many deadlines for financial aid aren’t until senior year, students can always start searching for scholarships and researching other ways to fund their educational goals.

 Here are some resources to get students started:

Ready : Preparing for My Education

The rest of high school is going to fly by. Hopefully you’ve already started a list of colleges you might be interested in—junior year is the time to start narrowing your options for schools or programs.

Ready : What You Need to Know

If you want to be able to support a family, and have the things you want in life—like a home and a car—then earning a college degree is your best option.Whether you go to a four-year university, to community college, or to a technical or vocational school, if you choose to advance your education past high school, you’re choosing a better life for yourself.

Ready : Overview

Welcome to high school! There’s a lot to learn and it’s never too early to start planning your next steps after graduation.

Grad : Transfer Planning

Planning to start at a community college and then transition to a four-year institution? Don’t leave your hard-earned credits behind. Most colleges have their own standards for transferring credits, so make sure you visit the website of the schools you’d like to attend and schedule a time to talk with an admissions officer or adviser.

 If you’re doing Running Start, confirm that your community college credits will transfer to your top-choice schools.

Grad : Military Information

The military can offer a diverse and challenging set of experiences and skill development with travel opportunities and even help pay for part of your education. In order to join the military, you need to not only be physically fit, but having good grades and strength in math, engineering, science and foreign languages can help you move up more quickly.

Set : Find the Right School

Do you want to stay close to home or move far away? Are you really into sports, or want a school that has more art and cultural activities? Are you hoping to live on campus in a residence hall, or in an off-campus apartment? These are things you will consider when choosing a school. While academic programs are very important, there are a lot of factors that go into picking a school or program.
