Middle School

While it may seem premature to ask middle school students to begin thinking about careers, research has shown that one of the key indicators of future academic and career success is exposure to career awareness activities in grades 6-8. At these grade levels, the goal is not for students to select a career, but to introduce them to the range of programs that exist and prepare them to make decisions about high school coursework and, ultimately, their future.
