College/Career Readiness & IGP’s
PERSONAL PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS
Created by the Education and Economic Development Act of 2005, Personal Pathways to Success was designed to provide all public school students in South Carolina with the resources to identify explore and develop an education plan for their career and employment goals.
INDIVIDUAL GRADUATION PLAN (IGP)
Beginning in the 8th grade, students write an Individual Graduation Plan with help from guidance counselors and parents or parental designees. The IGP is a road map that guides students toward their education, career, and employment goals. It includes general graduation requirements, as well as elective coursework and other strategies for meeting long-term goals. Eighth grade students choose a cluster of study around which to focus their interests, abilities and career goals. By the end of the tenth grade, students will select a major from their chosen cluster. The IGP’s are reviewed and updated yearly.
