Credits obtained through the K-12 system may be transferred to the Adult 12 program.
I am not sure what I want to do when I finish school. How can I find out what kinds of jobs are available that someone like me would be interested in?
You need to think about who you are, and how your personal characteristics, skills and talents might influence what will make you happy. Remember, when you love your job, it never feels like you are going to work! Think about what is important to you. Do you like working with people? Young people or elderly people? Do you like working with your hands? Do you want to work outside or inside? (Think about the great summers we have, but also about the not so balmy winters!) Are you happy doing the same thing all the time, or is variety important to you? Is it important for you to be close to friends and family, or would it be OK to travel around the province or country?
