College & Career Center

Welcome Knights!

The College and Career Center provides information and resources to students to help plan their future goals as they navigate the college planning and application process. At ACP students are introduced to the college planning process during the Educational and Career Action Plan lesson that continues to build throughout their high school years.

Students are encouraged to attend college and university visits either virtually or at our campus, to help discover information about majors of study and learning opportunities along with information about the college. Most visits are held during club or lunchtime in the cafeteria, library, or the College and Career Center.

Student are encouraged to stop by the College and Career Center anytime or schedule one on one appointment with Mrs. Dalton. Parent and student meetings are also a great way to discuss the college planning process. For quick reference, the College and Career Center website provides information about career choices, college options, SAT and ACT testing and test prep, financial aid, scholarships, summer programs and volunteer opportunities.

Education and Career Action Plan

The Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP) was established by the Arizona Board of Education in 2008 requiring schools to establish a program that allows student to enter, track and update their academic, extracurricular, career and postsecondary goals.

Students will use Scoir, an online platform, to record their activities, explore careers using YouScience, and search for colleges. Freshmen students will establish their account and continue to enter their activities and accomplishments throughout their high school years.

At Arizona College Prep we don't see this process as just "checking a box" but as a daily process of building relationships with our students, helping them to discover their interests and develop the skills needed for future success.
