Career Cruising & Course Selection


Grand Erie schools utilize Career Cruising as a way for students to explore future career possibilities through comprehensive and engaging activities. Students journey through self-exploration activities that help them better understand their strengths and abilities. Their personalised assessments then are linked to potential careers, and students can explore these careers as they wish. Each career will explain in detail:

  • what courses a student should take;
  • what they typical pay range will be for the job;
  • whether their self-assessments match up well with the job;
  • interviews with people working in each job;

and much more!

To log into Career Cruising just follow these steps:

  1. Visit www.careercruising.com
  2. Enter username: ERIE-(same user name student uses on school computers)
  3. Enter password: same password student uses to log into school computers


It's that easy. We also use Career Cruising for course selections. Students and parents can work together to plan courses for their up-coming years. If you can't log in, please come and see Ms. Dulmage and she can help you.
