8th Grade Pathways
The GVSU CSO offers two programs for 8th grade students to better prepare them for their post-secondary pathway.
The first program is the STEAM Career Exploration. Here, students will learn about various health and science careers before participating in hands-on activities that compliment the career information they receive. The will also go home with a GVSU STEM kit that incorporates real-world concepts and encourages them to continue building their STEM skills at home.
The second option is the College Awareness Program. Students who participate in this opportunity will take a deep dive into college life. They will research various schools that they are interested in, learn key terms and phrases that are associated with higher education, and receive a clear set of tools to utilize as they transition into high school
