Academic and Career Plan

Find out how Academic and Career Plans prepare students for life after high school.

The Academic and Career Plan is a process for students to plan for the future by exploring college and career options. Students will work with their teachers and school counselor to discover their personal strengths and interests, create goals to help them achieve success, plan for courses that meet high school graduation requirements and prepare for life after high school.

The development of the Academic and Career Plan starts in middle school and is updated regularly as each student’s academic, personal, and career goals change. This plan is created and stored electronically in Naviance Student.  Students will use Blackboard 24/7 to access Naviance Student.  

The Academic and Career Plan is required for all middle school students and for high school students who entered the ninth grade for the first time in or after the 2014-15 school year.

Students can write goals and action plans, research careers, add accomplishments and activities into a resume builder, search colleges, develop plans of study for high school, and plan for their future by using this tool.

Parents who have registered for an FCPS 24-7 Learning Parent View Account are now able to click on the Naviance Student link to view information about their high school students' postsecondary plans, interests, and opportunities.

To set up a Parent View account, go to the 24-7 Learning Parent View page.

Naviance Student allows your child to use planning tools that connect goals with their future plans. This tool lets your child personalize their action plans.

As a parent or guardian, how can you support your child? You can encourage your child to set goals and support them in their action plans to reach those goals. You can talk to your child about their strengths, interests, and results on their career surveys. You can discuss your child’s progress on the Academic and Career Plan. You can coach your child to help them make decisions about college and careers that match their personal strengths, interests, and goals, recognizing there are multiple pathways to success. Each school year, new tasks are assigned to your child and previous tasks are reviewed and updated.
