Academic and Career Planning

Tiger Manufacturing

Mission Statement

    Per Wisconsin DPI, Academic and Career Planning, or ACP, is a student-driven, adult-supported process in which students create and cultivate their own unique and information-based visions for post-secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of career management and planning skills.

    Educational and Career Opportunities in Our Region 

    The School District of Maple is located in the northernmost part of Wisconsin along the beautiful south shore of Lake Superior. It is in a thriving rural community with many opportunities for its graduates to attend post-secondary institutions and/or start a career. It is located in close proximity to UW-Superior, UM-Duluth, The College of St. Scholastica, Northland College as well as Superior Campus of the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College.  Over 50% of Northwestern High School graduates attend a 2 or 4 year institution within the first year after graduation. As the baby boom generation retires there will be plentiful career possibilities for graduates within the School District of Maple community. The top three growing occupations that will need trained workers include professional & business services, construction, as well as education & health services.
