10th Grade: Planning for Future

Explore the possibilities

High school students often have questions like:  What do I want to be? Should I go to college? What career should I choose? How do I save money on my education? What education provides the best options?  Pathways help answer these questions by providing you with information, resources, and conversations to build confidence in their post-secondary choices.

  • Talk to your family about what you might want to do after high school
  • Take the Pre-ACT test
  • Ask adults you know about their careers and the paths they took to get there
  • Review your YouScience profile to find suggested careers that match your interests and aptitudes, and complete the Career Cluster Inventory in the Minnesota Career Information System (MCIS) 
  • Learn more about careers that interest you by signing up for tours or guest speakers, and completing job shadow experiences
  • Get a summer job related to your career interests
  • Learn about the academic and skills requirements for careers of interest
  • Explore post-secondary costs, scholarships and financial aid
