The Career Cruising website (www.careercruising.com) provides students with access to a comprehensive career and college readiness program that will help them learn about potential careers that match their interests, skills, lifestyle interests, values and learning styles. With that information in hand, students will also be able to determine the type of training or education that is needed after high school to prepare for their career(s) of interest. Students can then adjust their class choices each year to fit with their goals. The website also enables students to research colleges, explore financial aid options, build a resume and learn about in-demand career fields, among other features.

For each graduating class, minimum requirements for their High School and Beyond Plan can be found on each student's Career Cruising Portfolio "My Plan" homepage. To see an itemized list, click on the “My Progress link next to the progress bar graphic. When all requirements have been met the bar indicator will read “100% standard met”.
