The Oak Hills Local School District seeks to inspire students to explore their greatest hopes and dreams. Students will be provided multiple opportunities to discover and examine the high school Pathway Program of Study which will lead to their post- secondary success. Middle school students will use the results from the Kuder Planning System and the ACT-Explore to learn more about their skills, interests and academic readiness in core subjects.

Post-Secondary Readiness

Kuder Student Career Planning System

  • Grade 6 – Students will be given insight into their pattern of interests and how they translate into career possibilities.
  • Grade 7 – Students will investigate their own skills and how they translate into career possibilities.


  • Grade 8 – The ACT Explore is an assessment that provides benchmark scores as early indicators of college and career readiness. ACT Explore is an effective tool for planning high school coursework and a useful career exploration and planning program.

Student Led Conferences

  • Through individual Parent/Student Conferences, the use of the KUDER Career Planning System, Oak Hills is providing a comprehensive grades 6-12 Post Secondary Planning System to provide students and parents with information as they begin exploring Post-Secondary decisions (or Opportunities).
