Post High School Planning

Career Planning

High School students, especially those close to graduation, often find themselves asking "What will I do after high school?" Some may have a clear vision of what they want to pursue and others may need help answering that question. The resources on this page aim to help students with career planning. These resources can help those who have a clear idea of their plans as well as those who are seeking more guidance.

If you have questions and concerns you should contact the counsellor at your school for more information.
