COLLEGE AND CAREER VISION

Mulholland Middle School College and Career Center is a resource dedicated to creating greater access to college and informed decisions regarding career choices by providing a variety of activities, information, resources, and personal assistance to help students achieve their college goals and career dreams. 


COLLEGE AND CAREER MISSION

We are committed to empowering all students with the adequate skills, knowledge and information to make well-founded decisions about their life choices and their post-high school options. 


COLLEGE AND CAREER GOALS

Our goal is for every student to develop a broader awareness of self and the breadth of opportunities available to them after high school.
In order to achieve this goal, MMS College and Career Center schedules activities for students conducted throughout the academic school year that help them EXPLORE their identity and their college and career dreams, PLAN for the future and TRANSITION to high school.
      1.    EXPLORING activities will develop students’ ability to identify their learning style, personality traits,                     career interests, skills and work values.
      2.    PLANNING activities will develop students’ ability to: 
                    - connect their interests, skills and values to a range of career and college options
                    - identify school courses and employability skills needed
                    - identify corresponding post-secondary pathways
      3. TRANSITIONING activities will develop students’ career and high school readiness skills, plus the traits,            work habits and behaviors needed to navigate career and academic transitions and pursue growth                    opportunities throughout life.

This plan is stored, accessed and viewed in the online planning tool Naviance Student and can easily be accessed by the students and their parents. For questions or assistance, contact Mrs. C.
