Academic & Career Planning
Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is intended to equip students and their families with the tools necessary to make more informed choices about postsecondary education, training, and careers for life after high school. It is part of DPI's overall vision for every student to graduate high school academically, socially, emotionally, and life ready.
Each student’s ACP changes and evolves over time. The ACP process personalizes each student’s educational experience while providing opportunities to set goals in preparation for the future. ACP is a student-driven, ongoing process that actively engages students and enables them to:
• Understand their own interests, strengths, values, and learning styles
• Create a vision of their future
• Develop individual goals
• Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and goals
Xello: College & Career Readiness Software
Xello is the only K–12 online program that fully engages every student in building the skills, knowledge, and plans for future success—regardless of background, ability, or pathway. This allows students to explore their personality traits and strengths while connecting them to future career interests.
The Graduate Portfolio will gather information over four years at Germantown High School to create a comprehensive understanding of career interests/plans. This information will be pulled from a variety of ACP lessons provided during Resource period as well as work completed on one's own time.
The planning tools on the Common App website guide students through every step of the college application and admissions process. There are more than 950 different colleges and universities to explore with all of the relevant dates and information related to the application process.
If a school doesn't show up on the Common App, that means they require their own personalized application. Those can be found on the individual school's website.
