Career and College Planning

​​​​​​Career Focused Education provides all students with the tools necessary to successfully navigate the career and college planning process. The Michigan Department of Education requires all students to complete an Educational Development Plan (EDP). The purpose of an EDP is to provide every student with an ongoing record of career and college planning guiding them in selecting careers and postsecondary programs which align with their aptitude, interests and strengths. This process begins in the 7th grade and students continue to update and revise their EDP throughout high school. Students utilize Career Cruising, which is an online career and college readiness program provided to all districts in Oakland County. With the support of their family and the educational system, students develop educational and career goals, complete interest and skill assessments, perform career and college searches, and create action plans to attain their future goals.
