12th Grade: Execute PlanAcademic and Career Planning (ACP) in 12th Grade

What does ACP look like in 12th grade?

During their senior year, students will execute their plan.  Whether it is preparing for interviews, completing college applications, or meeting with a recruiter; our students will be ready.  As they progress along their career path, we encourage our students to continually reflect, study and refine their plan as needed.

If you have questions about ACP, please contact your child's school counselor.

Below you will find the ACP experiences for students in 12th grade.
