CAP Program for College Admission Assistance
#CAP (College Admission Process) is a step-by-step program that walks high school Juniors and Seniors through the process of applying and gaining acceptance into colleges and universities. Throughout the program, students will receive free assistance with personal statements, SAT/ACT resources, and identify various colleges and universities that they would like to gain acceptance into. They will also hear from a host of speakers and subject-matter experts who can act as resources for them. The ultimate goal of #CAP is to have each high school Senior gain acceptance into a college or university of his or her choice upon graduating high school.
Our Orientation Session will be held Thursday, September 16th, 2021, from 6:30-8:00pm via Zoom.
Contact Mrs. Hamilton for an application or more information.
