The Career Center at Farmington High School offers opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond the traditional classroom setting. Students interested in discovering and exploring their career interests or gaining work experience can come to the Career Center for help with employment applications, resumes, interviewing skills and much more. The Career Center also coordinates a wide range of career-related activities and events including:
Company shadow days
Hospital career days
Professional networking conferences
The Career Center is located adjacent to the School Counseling offices in room 161 and houses a seminar style classroom, college and career resource library, and computers for student use. Military and college representatives also meet with students in the Career Center.
hours & scheduling
The Career Center is open 7:30-3:00 Monday-Friday. Students may get a pass to visit the Career Center during a free period or make an appointment via email.
The Career Center, in collaboration with the FHS School Counseling Department, was involved in mapping FHS elective course offerings to the 16 national Career Clusters and learning opportunities within and beyond the walls of Farmington High School.
The resulting document that is linked on the right is intended as a resource to help students explore courses related to their areas of interest and potential career goals and aspirations. Included in this document is a description of each Career Cluster, possible college majors, example careers, recommended elective offerings, clubs & activities, connections to the Farmington community, and valuable school contacts designed to enhance our student experiences both in and outside of the classroom.
Equity, community, and Inclusion
The Career Center is committed to advancing equity, community, and inclusion at Farmington High School. We recognize that students come to school with diverse lived experiences, interests, identities, and talents. We respond to this diversity in students' backgrounds and interests by engaging with the community to expand the learning opportunities that are available to students. In this way, the Career Center supports flexible pathways by increasing access to personally meaningful learning opportunities for students. The Career Center understands that there is not a single pathway to career fulfillment and therefore provides opportunities in a diverse range of career fields. The Career Center is committed to providing equal access to its opportunities for all students at FHS.
vision of the global citizen
Career Center programming fosters students' development in all areas of the Vision of the Global Citizen. We promote: self-aware individual by helping students explore their personal, academic, and career interests and develop their sense of identity; empowered learner by giving students the knowledge and skills to take initiative and explore their career interests; disciplined thinker by connecting students with authentic projects and tasks that require critical thinking and novel solutions; engaged collaborator by fostering teamwork with diverse individuals and organizations in the greater Farmington community; and civic-minded contributor by connecting students with volunteer and internship opportunities that allow them to give back and serve their community.
