The students at Lighthouse Education Center work on a variety of
activities to get ready for post-high school. One activity the students
participate in is called "Career Cruising". When using this web-based
program, students can explore different career interests and what types
of classes and training they need to prepare for them.
resource available to our students is Michigan Rehabilitative Services
(MRS). A representative from MRS meets with different high school
students throughout the school year to help prepare them for work and/or
training after graduation. MRS is a great resource for our students,
whether or not they are college-bound.
Finally, as part of the IEP

Teachers explore students' needs and aspirations to determine which
activities are imperative now to help them later.
