Release Date: 10/7/2011 11:44:07 AM
Liberty High School will hold its annual CAPP program throughout the morning on Wednesday, October 12, 2011. The focus of the morning will be on Career Assessments, Planning, and Preparation.
Ninth grade students will create a career interest survey using the Bridges program learning about themselves, career pathways, and this helpful tool. They also will hear from upperclassmen and teachers about the career completer programs available at Liberty and at the Career and Technology Center. Finally, students will participate in a lesson to fine tune their problem solving skills within a team.
Tenth grade students and registered eleventh graders will participate in PSAT testing for the entire morning. This college preparation test will help students develop skills for taking the SAT and ACT tests in the future. Score interpretations and resources will provide students with excellent online tools to evaluate and improve their performance.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) will be offered to eleventh and twelfth grade students. This testing program gives excellent information about student interests and aptitudes covering traditionally tested subjects and other skills related to careers that are in demand. There also will be guest speakers to share information about their careers and the steps that took them there, and students will explore tools that they can use to evaluate career options they may be considering. A Post-Secondary Schools Fair will feature representatives from a variety of programs offering trade, technical, and community college credits. Teachers will be on hand to assist students with their college presentations and essays.
