    What is Individual Career Academic Planning? (ICAP)

    An ICAP is a multi-year process that guides students as they explore career, academic and post secondary opportunities. Family, student and educators collaborate to develop the ICAP, which equips students with the awareness, knowledge and skills to create their own meaningful exploration of college and career opportunities. The ICAP is an evolving document that reflects students?changing passions, aptitudes, interests and growth.

    Life beyond high school requires different competencies than in the past, and are ever-changing. By 2025, three of four Oklahoma jobs will require education or training beyond high school. When students complete an ICAP, they discover which pathways fit their unique talents and what kind of academic preparation and experiences will prepare them for in-demand careers, some of which may not even exist when they graduate from high school.
