Spotlight on GOCAPS!

Greater Ozarks Centers for Advanced Professional Studies (GOCAPS) provides juniors and seniors opportunities for real world, experiential learning. Students are off-campus for half a school day learning in a non-traditional setting with project-based learning using the teacher as a facilitator. Transportation is the student's responsibility. Please attend an open house if you are interested.
