Individualized Career & Academic Plan (ICAP)

The Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and postsecondary opportunities. With the support of adults, students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college-ready.

 When students complete a meaningful ICAP process, they: 

  • Connect the relevance of education to future aspirations.

  • Are more motivated to attend school and stay engaged.

  • Become confident learners who can actively set goals.

  • Make secondary and postsecondary course plans to pursue career and life goals.

  • Are able to articulate their transferable skills and apply knowledge about how their actions today connect with their goals.

The Naviance platform helps us understand students’ interests, strengths and needs, so we can individualize support to help them reach their goals. Unique readiness content and activities help us build knowledge and strengthen students’ competencies in all essential areas. To access Naviance, you will need to talk to your school counselor. 

How ICAP works at Brady

The ICAP tool assists students in planning a path to college and career, including goal-setting, college opportunities, academic planning, financial literacy and financial aid and life skills.

The Brady Counseling Department focuses on student needs and preparing students for their future career and college goals.  We do this by having our students take the Brady Support and Resources Survey and we look at what they have done at their other schools.

Our goal is to build an Individualized Graduation Plan.  The Individualized Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), which is a series of lessons and activities that may have worked on with other counselors at other schools may be part of this plan.  We may use what you have already done as a guide to help you with your graduation plan.
