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.  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. It is a road map of sorts.   

The ICAP 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 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 child  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 that will be taken. 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. Updated ICAPS are required each semester for all Concurrent Enrollment students.

Email Mrs. Sweeney if you are having trouble creating a plan with your student.
