    Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAP) 

    Mapleton students will begin building an individual career and academic plan that prepares them for post-secondary and workforce success. The ICAP is designed to assist students and families in exploring post-secondary career and educational opportunities, to develop academic goals to align with career and educational plans, while also helping students understand how volunteering in the community can assist in post-secondary preparation and opportunities for entering the workforce.

    Tools students are encouraged to utilize when exploring career interests for ICAP projects are: 

    College in Colorado - www.collegeincolorado.org 

    Occupational Outlook Handbook - https://www.bls.gov/ooh/

    Both of these resources, College in Colorado and the Occupation Outlook Handbook, offer details about:

    • what specific careers do
    • what the typical work environment is like
    • how students can have a career in this field
    • what people who work in this chosen career earn
    • and how many jobs are expected in this career field in the future
