College Achievement Program
The College Achievement Program (CAP) is a differentiated, holistic support program focusing on academic success and independence for students after high school. CAP students work with specialists—individually and with their student cohorts—on academic and/or social and independent living skills. Students receive support through one-on-one meetings; text, email and phone reminders; and coordinated communication among students, instructors and parents.
