These may include such challenges as finding ways to overcome procrastination and complete homework, developing strategies for staying on task, building self-esteem, creating plans for a future after graduation and finding ways to make and keep friends.

As our students approach graduation, Westview provides college and vocational counseling. Students go on field trips to various prospective colleges campuses and our counselor is also available to help with the college application process, as appropriate.

WorkAbility Program / College Guidance:

WorkAbility is a California Department of Education training program for adolescents. It is designed to promote career awareness while students complete their high school program.

Along with classroom instruction and individual career counseling, students are provided opportunities for paid and unpaid work experience and receive ongoing support and guidance in developing their future college and/or vocational options. Our students have held jobs in various industries including film, retail, medical and fundraising.

The main focus of Westview’s WorkAbility program at the middle school level is to increase self-knowledge and self-exploration. The emphasis is primarily on goal setting and how to go about achieving these goals via college or vocational school. High school students delve more deeply into the career search process as they complete interest and aptitude inventories, create resumes and develop interview skills.
