Career Exploration and Academic Career Plans

During the spring, each 7th grade student will meet with a School Counselor to develop an Academic and Career Plan (or ACP for short).  ACP's will include information about career goals and high school and post secondary goals.  After students complete their ACP, a copy will be sent home to parents.

To learn more about ACP's, visit the Virginia Department of Education website: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/instruction/graduation/academic_career_plan.shtml
