We Have Explorer and Choices!

Encourage your child to plan an education and career path with Choices® Explorer and Choices® Planner

Attention Students and Parents:

Wylie High School is pleased to provide a new education and career planning service for students. Choices Planner is an online program that helps your child explore education options, discover a wide variety of occupations, and make plans to achieve his or her goals -- from school or from home!

A motivated student who chooses a pathway is a more focused, achievement-oriented student. This passion and enthusiasm can lead to better study habits, better grades and greater course involvement.

Does your child have a solid plan for the future? Choices Explorer helps students realize a new world of opportunities by bringing to life more occupations than ever. Over 900 career profiles will engage your child in career exploration as he or she discovers endless possibilities right at their fingertips.

Choices Planner helps students build effective plans quickly and easily with the Career Plan Builder in Your Portfolio. Your child can save as many plans as he or she desires while exploring all the options and finding the right career path. Choices Planner provides effortless access to detailed information about more than 7,000 colleges, technical schools and graduate schools. There are even tools to help build impressive resumes, practice job search and interviewing skills, and much more.

Choices Explorer makes career exploration simple – it’s as easy as choosing a favorite school subject, or answering a few questions about your interests and skills. The Basic Skills Survey shows occupations that may be good matches for the skills your child identifies. Students can also try the Interest Profiler to see occupations related to things that interest them.
