This course - College, Career, and Academic Planning - developed for practicing professional school counselors and pre-service counselors, includes four sessions that focus on engaging students in early career awareness and planning, using data to guide academic planning, transition of students from middle school to high school and then to college, and the importance of postsecondary choices and finding the right postsecondary fit. As a participant in this course, you will build knowledge and skills in each of these areas, and will engage in constructive discussions in a learning community with your colleagues during each session.

Note: The term "college" is used throughout this course to refer to any postsecondary education or training. "College" refers to a Pell-eligible educational institution beyond the high school level, including those that offer apprenticeship programs, certificates, and associate and/or bachelor degree programs.
