College Preparedness

When students enter Capital Prep, they know upon graduation they will receive access to a four-year college program. We boast that 100% of our graduating students, for over 10 years, have a received acceptance into at least 1 four-year college program. Our teachers and staff work hard to hold students accountable to this goal by creating engaging and rigorous lesson plans that push beyond their limits. Our curriculum focuses on social justice and social action. So that not only will our graduates go off to college, but they will have the knowledge on how to create real change in our world.
