Project Overview

The Onslow County Schools district, headquartered in Jacksonville, North Carolina, has a unique, student-centered approach to career-technical education. Its CTE department employs 108 educators who teach more than 150 CTE courses spanning 14 career cluster areas. The program draws nearly 10,000 students representing a wide range of academic achievement levels, interests, and post-high school ambitions. 

Students enrolled in Onslow's CTE program include those on a high-school-to-workforce trajectory as well as the "non-traditional" high-achievers on a four-year-college track. Why? Onslow's CTE programs are preparing students for high-demand, high-wage careers through a combination of advanced training, skill development, and effective career guidance interventions such as the Onslow County Schools College and Career Planning System, Powered by Kuder®.

Pathways Link

Following the initial launch of their customized solution, Onslow County Schools chose to expand their college and career planning system with the addition of Pathways Link. This powerful feature was designed by Kuder's career development experts to quickly connect students to Onslow’s own CTE courses or other specialized programs of study by displaying relevant offerings alongside the student’s interest, skills, and work values assessment results.
