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.

Every student will work towards completion of goals as they complete their coursework to earn their high school diploma.

Concurrent Enrollment students are asked to complete the ICAP checklist to ensure the classes they are taking are align with their post-secondary workforce readiness (PWR) goals. The tasks on the checklist need to be completed on Naviance and reviewed with their counselor.
