The Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP) is a document that will guide students through their coursework and activities with the purpose of achieving personal career goals. The ICAP is a multi-year process that, with the support of the school as well as the family, encourages the student to develop the awareness, knowledge, attitude and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college ready (Oklahoma Career Tech).
ICAP starts with a student interest inventory. Using online questionnaires, students will identify their interests, as well as in which areas their existing skills lie and the type of work environment they enjoy. All of this information helps guide students to discover different career paths.
