Supporting College & Career Readiness for Every Child
This year, your child has access to MajorClarity, our school's online career planning platform designed to help your child discover future careers, then take ownership of their personal academic goals.
Your child has access to features like:
- Novel career path “test-drives” and hundreds of occupations to explore
- Quick assessments to determine personality and learning style
- Easy college application and scholarship tracking.
Counselors will be meeting with all 7th and 8th grade students beginning the second semester to navigate MajorClarity features and complete their Academic Career Plans. We will provide you additional information after your child has completed this activity with the counselors.
