Counselor’s Corner

We are sad to announce that Margaret-Ann McKee has moved on to other opportunities. We are working on finalizing our counselor placement and will update this page once we do. In the meantime, please access the resources below.



Individual Academic and Career Plans (ICAPs) are the basic foundation for students in learning and planning their career passions and opportunities.  ICAPs are also a part of The Denver Plan, meet state legislation requirements and are a graduation requirement for students graduating in 2011 and beyond.  For students to truly graduate career and college ready students must have a plan that includes career exploration and exposure, knowledge of opportunities and self, and a plan for life after high school! 

Starting in sixth grade and continuing throughout high school, students create and update an ongoing plan which includes counselor-led activities on career interests, goal setting, college opportunities, financial aid, and non-cognitive skills which increase academic success. 

In Elementary School, the ICAP is full of exploration.  Students explore their own interests and skills, career options and possibilities.  Students learn academic and social skills and strategies and how they relate to their future in Middle School, High School, and beyond.

Early intervention is imperative for our students. Elementary school counselors provide classroom lessons on topics such as relational aggression, resiliency, character building, mediation, emotions, and empathy as well as academic skills and career exploration. Research supports this career exploration at the younger ages. (National Office for School Counselor Advocacy, 2012). In fact, career development can start as young as Preschool!
