School Counselors - Iowa College Access Network - ICAN

School Counselors

Helping students get to and do well in college and their future careers is a big job. The Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) can help you reach your students and their families through our initiatives, programs, planning tools and resources. We also have professional development opportunities and resources for college access professionals.

ICAN has worked to develop programs and services that compliment the work that counselors and educators do every day, and bring the expertise and knowledge of the ICAN team into your community. ICAN's programs are designed to prepare students for the careers of the future, helping them prepare for college and educating them and their families about the expectations that lie before them.

ICAN is a valuable resource for all education professionals as you help students progress through their education and prepare for life after high school.
