Individual Career Academic Plan

Individual Career & Academic Plan

The Individual Career & Academic Plan is a document that will guide individuals through the coursework and activities for achieving personal career goals.  An ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and post-secondary opportunities. With the support of adults, students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college ready.

A personalized ICAP, simply put, is a roadmap that guides individuals through the coursework and activities for achieving personal career goals. An ICAP connects student’s high school and post-secondary educational experiences.
