Career Development

 
Becoming...YOU!
 
At North Catholic, we believe in starting career exploration early, because, let's be honest:
How can you possibly know what to do for the rest of your life without being exposed to many different options and possible career paths?
E-Portfolio
The E-Portfolio is a student’s website that is also a reflection of a student's future career plans. 

Field Trips/Group Job Shadows
Hands-on field trips allow students to tour local businesses/organizations.  Group Job Shadows take it a step further to allow direct interaction with employees so students can learn more about specific jobs and possibly interview employees.

CAP  Talks
Career presentations held throughout the year for students who specifically have a career interest in a particular field.  

College Caravan
We visit colleges within a 1.5 hour driving radius of North Catholic in the summer. 

College and Career Prep Seminar Course for Seniors

Designed to help students navigate senior year and prepare for life after high school in a classroom setting.
