College Assistance Program (CAP)

Navigating the post-secondary pathway can be confusing.  The College Assistance Program (CAP) provides opportunities for students to expand their awareness, plan, research, and select from a wide range of post-secondary options to meet their unique needs. The CAP goal is to guide students and their parents/guardians through the process of find appropriate post-secondary institutions, apply for admission, and apply for financial aid and scholarships.
