sThe John Muir College and Career Center

 
What Does Your Future Look Like?

As usual, we are here to assist you in the Career Center with all of your
post-high school planning.
Let's make 2013-2014 a year to remember! 
  

        

 

      Welcome!!  
 
 
 
Life After High School, Are You Ready?
The John Muir College and Career Center
can help!
 
Our goal is to provide students the resources, tools, and guidance necessary to chart a path toward their career goals. This information includes but is not limited to: financial aid (e.g. scholarships), SAT and ACT testing information, promoting community service and hosting visitations of college and military representatives. Our intent is to support John Muir High School students as they assume responsibility for their success in school and beyond.

                    

This website is just one of several components in our continued effort to connect the wealth of information and opportunities afforded our students into a comprehensive form that enables students to focus rather than be overwhelmed. 
The Career Center also has designated topic information boards prominently displayed dedicated to prompting student’s attention. Information such as, student employment, Financial Aid, and Occupational information is available for students.  

As freshmen, students create their own portfolio using the California Career Zone Career Exploration Program and take an assessment to identify their primary interests as it relates to careers. These portfolios follow them year to year.  Students are encouraged to add to their portfolio as they go. Career assessment and interpretation services are also available with a one on one session with Mrs. Silva.

The College and Career Center itself has been designed with students and parents in mind.  High School along with college and career planning can be overwhelming.  We have broken this process into manageable pieces allowing them to focus on one piece at a time.
