Career Pathways

What is a Career Pathway?

A Career Pathway is a planning tool that gives students an opportunity to explore personal and career interests in a systematic way.

  • Pathways are designed to help students develop connections between classroom experience and future educational and career goals.
  • The schools in the West Sound Consortium have identified five Career Pathways.
  • All schools in the West Sound Consortium use the Pathways.
  • This will assist students who may transfer to another school or attend classes at West Sound Technical Skills Center.

Why Select a Career Pathway?

  • Helps students match personal interests and abilities with career fields.
  • Helps students make good decisions when registering for classes.
  • Improves communication skills and academic success.

How do students know which is the right pathway?

South Kitsap High School utilizes a program called Xello (sounds like Zello) to support students in high school and beyond planning. Xello is an online program that helps create a successful future through self-knowledge, exploration, and planning.

  1. Go to  If a logon prompt comes up, use your district student provided logon ID and password (same ID and password used with the PC’s in the library or computer labs).
