Post-Secondary Planning

Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP)

ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic, and postsecondary 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.


Career and Trade Planning

Throughout a student's high school experience, they can expect counselors to come into core classrooms to work on career and personality assessments. In addition, we will work on course selection and postsecondary planning. By making use of a student's ICAP, guidance is given to each student to help them achieve to their fullest potential whether it be college, career, or trade school.


College Planning

Counselors meet with freshmen, sophomores, and juniors during classroom presentations, and with seniors individually to assist in planning high school curriculum and post-secondary options. Course selection is done with college entrance requirements in mind, although students intending to apply to specific selective colleges should be careful to check websites for current information on requirements. The junior credit check will be completed in the spring of junior year. Senior meetings should be completed by November of the senior year.
