Planning for High School Graduation:
Developing an ICAP
Four Year Academic Plan (ICAP)
An ICAP is a 4-year plan of your child's high school years - a roadmap of sorts. Use the forms below to help you plan and create your student's Four Year Academic Plan (ICAP). Keep in mind, this is a plan; it is changeable. It is meant to be updated based on your child's goals for post-high school. The ICAP ensures that your child steadily is getting classes he or she will need to enter college or the career of his or her choice.
The ICAP (updated each semester) is required for all Concurrent Enrollment students, and recommended for part-time students.
High school graduation requirements for Jeffco are linked below so you can see which specific classes are required for graduation as a full-time student. Part-time or homebased students do not need to meet the Jeffco graduation requirements.
College admissions requirements are also linked below. These are general requirements, and SOME universities' requirements are different. Be sure to look at the universities that are of interest to your student before their junior year.
Instructions for filling out the Four-Year Academic Plan (ICAP)
Fill in student's name and grade for the coming year.
List all high school level classes taken. "CR" stands for credit. Each semester of a class is 0.5 credit; one year is 1 credit.
List all college classes taken and indicate such by writing (C) after the course name. Each 3-semester hour course gets a 0.5 credit, and 4- and 5-semester hour classes receive a 1.0 credit.
Project the rest of high school by filling in the anticipated classes. Use the college admissions or high school graduation requirements as a guide for this.
Remember, this is a road map that can change. Do not stress too much about it, but plan so you are ready for college admissions, if that is your goal.
An ICAP is not an "approved" high school plan. It is a planning tool to set goals and determine if student is on track for meeting graduation and post graduation goals. ICAPs should be updated and reviewed each semester.
