Our ACP Vision

Grade 5-12 Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a comprehensive process that engages families and our community to inspire, educate, and support each student in developing interests and creating his or her own plan.

Parent & Community Involvement in ACP

Parent involvement in ACP is critical.  In grades 7, 9 & 11, TEAM Talks with individual students and their parents/guardians are held? to discuss their current and future plans.  We also encourage parents to register for their own Xello account via their child’s account.  The community is also an integral component of ACP.  Thanks to Inspire Sheboygan County (a valuable addition to Xello), many local businesses are assisting our schools in preparing the students of our county for their future.


Students in grades 6-12 will use Xello, a self-exploration and planning program, for their career and postsecondary education exploration as well as to house their online portfolio.
