Assumption High School is very excited to announce a new program called Career Cruising. Career Cruising is a self-exploration and planning program designed to help students achieve their potential in school, career and life.
Career Cruising will…
BUILD SELF AWARENESS
Students will learn about themselves—their interests, skills, preferences and aspirations—so they can explore the opportunities right for them.
You will learn about career possibilities and educational pathways by exploring rich, engaging content.
CREATE A PLAN
A dynamic, actionable plan outlines the steps needed to achieve career, school and life goals.
MAKE IT REAL
Plans are then brought to life—whether for a career, job or college—by taking informed action.
To use Career Cruising go to www.careercruising.com. Sign into your account that has set been set up specifically for you.

Class of 2018, it’s time to think about Graduation. Moments with Class/Herff Jones will be here Thursday, September 28th during Conferences from 3:30-7:00 PM. They will be taking your Graduation Announcement orders. The packets were given to your student last week. Parents are welcome to send the order form and payment with their student to school and drop off in the Front Office, or stop by in person at Conferences to place the order and ask questions.
A survey will be sent late to all seniors to get their information for their diplomas and sizes for their gowns, so you will not need to do anything with that. The Graduation fee for the cap and gowns was included in your tuition statements.
