The research study focused on the career preference of grade 10 students in Dasmarinas North National High School and Kin Yang Academy. The demographic variables were gender, type of school, NCAE results, and financial capacity. A total of 400 students participated in the study using simple random sampling technique. The descriptive research method was utilized in the study and a self-made questionnaire was used to gather data. Statistical treatments applied were frequency, percentage and chi-square. The results of the study revealed that majority of respondents are male, were equally distributed from public and private schools, have an aptitude for spiritual vocation according to their NCAE result, and have financial capacity to go to college. Most of them chose the Academic Track and selected the Accounting Business, and Management (AB) strand. Majority of the career preference of the Grade 10 students after finishing senior high school (SHS) is to pursue tertiary education. Majority of respondents who chose to pursue tertiary education have preference in the following order of college courses: BS in Accountancy; BS in Civil Engineering and BS in Hotel and Restaurant Management; BS in Criminology and BS in Tourism Management; BS in Architecture, BS in Marine Engineering, and BS in Business Administration, and BS in Information Technology. In general, the results reflected that the preferred college course of the respondents does not match or does not fall under the scope of their respective NCAE results. Career preference of the respondents does not vary whether the individual is male or female. This means that a male's preference can also be a female's preference in terms of career, and the same is true the other way around. Findings revealed that the school type and financial capacity of respondents contribute to the students' respective career preference. Career preferences of students are different when they are from public school and when they are from private school. Also, career preference also differs when the student has the financial capacity for college education or more. Career preference also differs when the student has the financial capacity for college education or none. Students from private schools and those with financial capacity are more likely to continue college education.
