Indiana's ninth-grade students must write a plan for their high school education that will lead them to a career. To help them in this effort, and throughout their high school years, the Indiana Career and Postsecondary Advancement Center provides students with newsletters, planners, and college financial aid information. This booklet is part of that effort. It consists of six sections: know yourself; check out reality; know your options; maximize high school; engage in activities; and ways to use this information. This document shows students how to chart a destination, identify their abilities, discover their interests, and explore change. It describes how abilities can be applied in the real world and how factors, such as the cost of living, can influence career decisions. Knowing one's options is also important, and details on training options, two-year schools, and other educational avenues are provided. The largest section shows students how to maximize their high school years, with tips on Tech Prep, studying, and standardized tests. Students are also encouraged to try new things, such as studying abroad, to offer themselves more options for careers. Some of the common terms in education and career counseling are defined in the back. (RJM)
