Career Cruising for K-12

I have a few students who are so disconnected from school. But when we started the unit on Career Cruising something changed...I attribute their engagement to the authenticity of the work and quality of the Career Cruising web site.

Create Successful Futures

Helping students build a future plan connecting school to real life positively impacts their academic achievement, classroom engagement, and career and life success. Motivated students contribute to higher-performing schools and stronger communities (see evidence here).

Start the Career Conversation Early

Career Cruising’s engaging interface gets students excited about exploring their options, interests, and aspirations through interactive games starting in K-2, followed by career activities and assessments in later grades. Because the program is so easy to use, educators spend less time explaining and more time focusing on activities that make an impact.

Connect the Dots Between Academics and Life

Career Cruising connects the real world to the classroom with the latest career and labor market information, salaries, and educational pathways – all written in a way that’s easy to understand. Students also learn essential 21st-century skills like financial literacy and goal-setting through video interviews, role-playing activities, and more.

SELF-AWARENESS

Career Cruising’s elementary program and world-renowned assessments – covering learning styles, skills, and interests – help students better understand themselves and the importance of building a plan.

K-12 DIGITAL PORTFOLIO

The My Plan digital portfolio is a one-stop location for students to save careers and schools of interest, assessment results, high school grades, journal entries, resumes, and more as they progress through school.

PERSONALIZED PATHWAYS

Every student is unique – why not their pathways? Career Cruising’s database of career profiles, schools, programs, scholarships, and job-search tools puts students on the pathway that’s right for them.

Tracking for success

Career Cruising includes administrative tools that open the lines of communication between educators, administrators, and parents, offering real-time visibility into student progress.

Educators and Administrators can…

  • Set portfolio completion standards for each grade level to drive student engagement.
  • Automate and generate reports to support decision-making and planning at schools and districts.
  • Send targeted messages and reminders to students and parents.
  • …and more!

Parent Involvement

Career Cruising for K-12 also includes parents and families. Parents have a critical role in helping students plan for the future. That’s why they have access to their child’s progress at all times and are able to communicate with their child’s teachers and counselors using an integrated Parent Portal.
