Career Planning and Guidance Curriculum

  • Lakeview counselors are committed to helping students explore their interests and abilities in terms of how these relate to careers. 

     

                 

    When students enter Lakeview High School, an Educational Development Plan is created or updated; this process continues each year throughout high school.  In the case of students who have attended Lakeview Middle School, this process starts in 5th grade.   This educational development plan involves activities such as course selection, career exploration, interest inventories, skills inventories, college research, academic planning, and other aspects of future planning.  Students' activities are saved in their Career Cruising accounts and comprise their EDP. To view specific requirements for graduation and recommendations for college preparation, go to 'academic program' from the main menu of the LHS site. For admissions requirements for specific colleges, visit indivudual college websites. 


    The EDP process is guided by a program called Career Cruising. This is a web-based program that helps guide students through many facets of post-secondary planning. Throughout their middle and high school careers, students use Career Cruising to complete activities such as career searches and assessments, college searches, job searches, course planning, and more. 

    Every LHS student has a Career Cruising login. If you have trouble logging in, contact your counselor. The format should be as follows:

    • Username: Student e-mail address (example: pedersonl@students.lakeviewspartans.org)
    • Password: Student number (example: 200123456)
