    Guidance programs facilitate development in three broad content areas.  These are identified as follows: Academic, Career, and Life Skills Development.  Academic development is comprised of strategies and activities that support and maximize student learning.  Career development provides the foundation for acquiring skills, attitudes, and knowledge that enable students to make successful transitions from schools to post secondary choices.  Life skills development provides the foundation for personal and social growth that contributes to educational and career success.  These competencies are linked to Gwinnett County's Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS), the State Department of Education's "List of Values and Character Education" (CE) and Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) as well as the American School Counselor Association National Standards (ASCA).
