ICAP / 4 Year Plan

  • What to Consider

    • What is an ICAP?
      • ICAP stands for Individual Career and Academic Plan. ICAPs are essentially roadmaps that help students plan their high school academic experiences around their post secondary goals. The goal is to guide students and families towards exploration of career, academic and multiple post-secondary opportunities. 
    • What’s the purpose of an ICAP?
      • The purpose of this plan is to help you get the most out of your high school experience. We want you to leave high school with knowledge and hands-on opportunities that have prepared you for the career you want to pursue. Creating a plan ahead of time will help you meet your long term goals.
    • How do I develop an ICAP?
      • The screencasts and links below will help you to create an effective ICAP. The idea is to select courses for your four years that will help you achieve your postsecondary career goals. 
    • I don’t know what I want to do after high school. What should I do?
