Career Development curriculum and service functions are based on the National Career Development Guidelines and National Standards for School Counseling Programs, endorsed by the North Carolina State Board of Education. There are two career development curriculum products: 6158 Exploring Career Decisions (6-8) and 6145 Career Management (9-12). The curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers and education in the 21st century. It helps students understand the lifelong, sequential process of determining self and career identity.

Both courses include competencies in self-assessment, matching interests to career choices, exploring the world of work, career research, and education and career planning. Opportunities for leadership development, critical and creative thinking, decision-making, problem-solving, teamwork and technology, and work-based learning are provided.
