Every day is career day!

We agree with ACTE research that identified “middle school as a time when students can benefit the most from career exploration.” Thanks in part from timely  legislation in key states and an expanded focus in the latest Perkins reauthorization, schools everywhere are expanding their middle school career exploration programs.  Our middle grade career collection features 43 titles in 5 distinct series and free classroom activity guides–all infused with our passion for helping students of all ages figure out what they want to be when they grow up. Bright Futures Press books supplement career exploratory classes, support specific CTE courses, and infuse core academic classes with real world learning.

Where learning meets the real world

Discover resources that help students find their own bright futures through creative career exploration experiences. Student-friendly and specially designed to be: Informative. Interactive. Inspiring.
