Academic and Career Planning

Why Academic and Career Planning?

Research suggests that meaningful student participation in a quality, on-going academic and career planning process can lead to the following:
  • Access to instruction and experiences needed to develop critical work/life skills, knowledge, and habits
  • Active student participation to determine how to meet his/her needs
  • Understanding skills, knowledge, and habits necessary to achieve his/her vision
  • More relevant course selection - enhancing each student’s understanding of the relevance of school courses and out-of-school learning opportunities
  • Increased engagement and motivation leading to better academic performance in school
  • Better understanding of post-secondary options - - providing the student with access to career development opportunities that incorporate self-exploration, career exploration, and career planning and management activities (ACP Process Phases: Know-Explore-Plan- Go)
