All of these surveys are found in our Naviance Career and College Program. Naviance is a comprehensive, web-based college and career readiness platform that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals.

One of the educational goals at Kennedy Catholic is to connect students to career pathways to align their interests, strengths, and education with a fulfilling and meaningful future profession. As part of an effort to Kennedy Catholic hosts an annual Career Day. Alumni, current parents and community members serve as career panelists, sharing their personal perspective, advice and experience in a variety of different careers. Students are able to explore professional options, while having the opportunity to ask questions of each panelist. Career Day is a platform for inspiration, the exchange of ideas and sharing experiences.
Students engage in professional development training covering digital citizenship, principles of human resources including interview skills and how and why to create a professional LinkedIn profile.
If you would like to participate in a Career Day panel next year, please contact Maurice Jones.
