My Life Plan
My Life Plan is a post-secondary planning graduation requirement for the class of 2010 and beyond.  In middle school, students will learn how to make successful transitions, explore careers, and make academic plans based on possible career paths. As 9th and 10th graders, students take inventories and surveys related to self-exploration, encouraging them to think about their interests, personality, and how these aspects all relate to the world of work.  As 11th and 12th graders, students transition to actually forming and executing a plan, ranging from career and college searches to post-secondary and job applications.

Students and families can access My Life Plan through their high school‘s Naviance site listed on the right. If you have questions about login information, please contact career center coordinators or counselors. For more information, view the following informational video:

You'll notice there are slightly different  plans for each class. MPS has updated My Life Plan for the 2016-2017 school year and beyond with the latest research around career and college readiness. As a result, each class will have slightly different My Life Plan requirements to account for the work they did within the former plan and the work they will do within the new plan.
