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 


    Why ACP?

    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.
