Academic and Career Planning

Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adultsupported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.
MISSION: Empowering ALL students to travel the road TO adulthood THROUGH education and training to careers.  
VISION: Re-imagining K12 education to equip students with meaningful and supportive adult relationships, and the ability to adapt to opportunities and challenges on their personalized journeys to successful lives.
The term ACP refers to both a process that helps students engage in academic and career development activities as well as a product that is created and maintained for students’ academic, career, and personal advancement. ACP is a student-driven, ongoing process that actively engages students enabling them to:
  • Understand their own interests, strengths, values, learning styles, 
  • Create a vision of their future, 
  • Develop individual goals, and 
  • Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and goals.
