What is ICAP?
Individual Career and Academic Plan
ICAP is a multi-year process that the Colorado Department of Education requires every district in the state to complete with their students, to intentionally guide 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.

In meeting the state requirements for ICAP, CCSD has laid out middle school requirements that we will complete and document at West Middle School. To begin creating an Individualized Career and academic Plan (ICAP) in Naviance each student will perform the following at some point throughout the year:
- Goal Setting - Set a S.M.A.R.T. goal for each year and/or for your future (6th, 7th, and 8th) Career
- Exploration – Take Career Key and Explore Career Clusters that are best suited for you (7th and 8th)
- Academic Planning – Get ready for high school! (8th)
What is Naviance?
Naviance is the electronic platform used by CCSD to explore and track College and Career Readiness through middle and high school. This is where the ICAP is stored and tracked in. Parents and students can access Naviance via the tile in my.cherrycreekschools.org.
Please see your grade-level counselor or administrator with any questions.
