Career Guidance

The counselors recognize the importance of supporting student development of a positive attitude toward work and the necessary skills to to make a successful transition from school to the world of work. We aim to provide opportunities for students to increase their career awareness. Classroom guidance lessons include completing interest inventories, researching various career clusters, developing a realistic budget based on income, connecting the relationship between education and earning potential and selecting high schools based on strengths and interests. The counseling department also facilitates the annual Career Day at Rogers. Career Day includes over 40 guest speakers from a variety of work fields inspiring our students with their stories of educational and work achievement. Speakers represented numerous fields including engineering, news broadcasting, acting, law enforcement, game design and medicine.
