Individual Career and Academic Plans

Students will continue to work with their counselors, teachers and families to develop, update and complete their Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAPs), a process which starts as early as the sixth grade. 

Through this personalized career and academic planning tool, students are empowered to evaluate all aspects of their path to college and career, including goal setting, college opportunities, academic planning, financial literacy and financial aid, and 21st-century skills. This framework creates an attainable roadmap for students, so they are able to visualize how exploring possibilities and achieving milestones translates to their future college and career aspirations. At the end of their senior year, they will turn in the completed plan to fulfill the ICAP requirement.
