ECAP, which stands for Educational and Career Action Plan, is a requirement for every student in Arizona.

So, what exactly is ECAP? Aside from the acronym, ECAP means that every student must give some serious thought as to what he or she wants to do after high school. Whether it’s writing a cover letter, preparing a resume, picking out a college or technical school, or deciding on a career or major, students will begin to prepare for their lives post-high school.

You can take ECAP as a class for credit through Sequoia Choice, or you can work on your own through the Arizona Career Information System. Either way, it is important that you think about your future plans.
