Our mission as professional school counselors at Hamilton is to provide a comprehensive, equitable, developmental, data-driven program that endeavors to support and advocate for each student in reaching their personal level of excellence in academic skills, post-secondary awareness, and personal/social well-being.
As advocates, we commit to leading the way with our communication and actions toward the Black Excellence Resolution. We encourage students to gain new perspectives as they learn from the rich cultural diversity experienced at Hamilton. We believe collaboration with school, family, and community is essential to best equip our students with the necessary tools to reach their potential and thrive in our global community.
Spark Industry Introduction
Middle school students learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and math through fun, hands-on activities.
Spark Industry Introduction is an opportunity for students in middle-school grades, 6-8, to visit professional workplaces and engage in fun projects while learning about different career options. Spark aspires to motivate students to pursue high-demand, high-wage careers they may never have considered prior to participating.
A particular focus in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art + design and math) industries can give students a head-start on their career identity development. Spark workplace visits typically last between two and three hours and feature lively speakers and hands-on and critical-thinking activities to inspire students. Read more
Each quarter the school counselors visit classrooms to talk with students about their Individual Career & Action Plan (ICAP). ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic, and postsecondary opportunities. Students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and or college-ready.
Lessons have been created specifically for each grade level and differ in their content. If you are interested in learning more about a presentation we encourage you to connect with us and we will be happy to answer any questions.
