Step 3: Get Involved & Stay Connected!

  • Plan your school year, plan your future. While at ETHS, students will develop a broader awareness of self and the breadth of opportunities available after high school. Engaging in the creation of your Individualize Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) will inform your decisions about courses and activities and allow you to make connections to your goals. Your ICAP incorporates self-exploration, career exploration and academic planning activities that enhance the relevance of school and out-of-school learning experiences. Connect to your online post-high school planning tool, Naviance Student.

    For questions or assistance, students and families may visit the ETHS Counseling web page for your grade-level counseling calendar and other resources, as well as more details about College & Career Services.
