Academic and Career Planning
Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a student-driven, adult-supported 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 throughout the content areas.
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, all school districts in Wisconsin are required to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6-12, as mandated by the state Department of Public Instruction and state law.
All students will receive Academic and Career Planning (ACP) support in the areas of:
- Individual Self Exploration (Self-Awareness)
- Career Exploration
- Career Planning
- Academic Exploration
- Academic Preparation
Because our world is changing at a constantly rapid pace, we need to create a system where students are able to compete and thrive in our global society. To be future ready means students will:
- Articulate how their talents and interests connect to a variety of future opportunities.
- Prepare a personal plan for goal attainment, and refine when needed based on individual experiences.
- Effectively be able to navigate both the world of post-secondary education and employment to successfully transition to adulthood.
- Possess confidence and demonstrate proficiency mastery of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions based on their goals.
