College and Career Readiness

ICA is fortunate to have a Flex Period when students can access College and Career Readiness activities and resources. These activities and meetings are designed to help students identify educational and career goals and plan for high school and college. The Flex course is viewable to all parents with a Canvas Parent login. 7th grade students also take the College and Career Awareness course that delves into different pathways to colleges and careers. Each year, students and parents have the opportunity to participate in a group and/or individual Plan for College and Career Readiness (PCCR) meeting. These meetings are a great time to discuss high school graduation credits, college prep exams, financial aid and other post high school choices.
