College and Career Pathways Advisors

College and Career Pathways Advisors (CCPAs) directly support our students in establishing a college and career plan to enable students to make well-informed, smart decisions regarding their career pathway exploration, industry preparation, and college selection. Students participate in career exploration utilizing the college and career planning software Naviance, along with several other resourceful websites like Doing What Matters, BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook, O*Net, and California Career Zone.

Students are introduced to assessments that allow students the opportunity to analyze their interests, strengths, and possible career pathway matches. Students are taught how to interpret assessment results and formulate a self-profile. Our goal is to ensure this self-analysis stage is a crucial foundation to ensure our students are creating a college and career plan that is aligned to persona, self-actualized interests, and goals.
