Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Education ALIVE has created tools for students to fulfill an Individual Career Academic Pathway (ICAP) as determined by the Oklahoma State Board of Education. We strive to move students from what they know to who they will become.
In a meaningful ICAP process, a student creates secondary and postsecondary course plans in pursuit of their career and life goals. They strategically select a postsecondary pathway to align with self-defined career, college and life goals. They establish better communication and engagement between school and home. They understand and demonstrate career exploration and career planning. (The Oklahoma State Department of Education)
