ICAP – Individual Career & Academic Plan



The ICAP (Individual Career and Academic Plan) is a personalized plan that all Colorado students must prepare to ensure readiness for postsecondary and workforce success. The ICAP, developed during Freshman Seminar and subsequent years’ language arts classes, is designed to help students:

  • Identify their strengths and interests
  • Relate that information to college and career planning
  • Align
  • coursework and curriculum
