Cameron Academic and Career Planning

ACP Explained

Academic and Career Planning is intended to equip students and their families with the tools necessary to make more informed choices about postsecondary education and training as it leads to careers.

It is part of DPI's overall vision for every student to graduate high school college and career ready. That means students must be competent both socially and emotionally. We want our students to be strong critical thinkers, collaborate and solve real-world problems, and persevere when things aren’t quite going their way. When put together, it’s about making them productive adults with satisfying careers.
