SCC is excited to implement PEAK this fall, introducing it to new students in ACA courses!  Through PEAK, our students across the curriculum will achieve success through Professional Exploration and Knowledge.

In ACA, students will use Career Coach and its strong interest assessment tool to narrow or confirm their interests, write a reflection essay that will showcase learning, and develop a five-year career plan that is grounded in theory and informed by their choices and resources at SCC.

All current and future delivery, grading/assessment, directions, capture points, and other supporting materials for PEAK will be available in THIS FOLDER.

Here are some specific, useful documents and materials:
  1. Executive Summary Introduction for PEAK
  2. ACA Instructor Guides and PEAK Modules for ACA 111 and 122
  3. Grading Rubrics for Reflection Essays and Five Year Plans
  4. Sample Reflection Essays and Five Year Plan and Worksheet to be completed before submitting Five Year Plans
  5. Slide Show for ACA training with PEAK's Student Learning Objectives and overview material
  6. Five Year Plan Submission Form for Students
  7. PEAK Learning Objectives for Students
  8. PEAK Timeline Cycle for QEP
  9. PEAK Advising Worksheet (For Appreciative Advising and Academic Advising Meetings)
PEAK will make a positive difference, not just during the first semester and ACA, but throughout our students' journeys at SCC, and beyond.
