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.
