College and Careers

 

Throughout the course of your child’s middle school years, they will receive instruction from School Counselors specific to college and career exploration. Middle school students will be knowledgeable about the world of work, explore career options, and relate personal skills, aptitudes, and abilities to future career decisions.

In seventh grade, students are introduced to Naviance Student, and compete the Career Cluster Finder. The Cluster Finder is an online questionnaire that helps students discover career clusters that are most interesting to them. Once a student completes the Career Cluster Finder, top matching career clusters are made available for review. Students have access to this program throughout the remainder of their education at Commack and can access it at home for further exploration or with their parents.

In eighth grade, students continue working on the Naviance platform and complete the Strength Explorer. Students have the opportunity to take a survey to define and reflect upon strengths, and apply them to programs that they are studying. Counselors also do follow up lessons with students to explore Road Trip Nation, which is an interactive program to help students define their own roads in life. Interviews chronicling the diverse personal stories of leaders who have turned their interest into their life’s work are available in Naviance Student.
