College Advising Prep (CAP) was founded with a strong mission to prepare students for college success by providing individualized academic support and guidance, from pre-k to twelfth grade. Part of college readiness may include academic tutoring services, test preparation, and college advising to help families navigate through the overwhelming college admission process.
CAP’s passionate educators have extensive experience in teaching and instruction, and will help identify and address students’ academic weaknesses. We will develop an innovative curriculum, specifically tailored to each student’s needs and learning style. Additionally, CAP educational advisors understand the college admissions landscape, and they also possess experience in academic and career counseling.
We aim to help students toward a process of getting them accepted to the college of their dreams. Our process is to thoroughly understand existing learning gaps between students’ current academics and where they should be in order to be successful in college.
We are a full-fledged educational service organization that is dedicated to helping students go in the direction they ultimately want to go!
These values represent the deepest beliefs and sentiments to which we can aspire to make an IMPACCT within our community:
Inclusiveness - We create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive learning environment that allows our students to engage and thrive.
Meaningful Connections - Our students feel valued and empowered through meaningful and authentic connections, allowing them to thrive.
Professionalism & Passion - Our teaching staff and educational advisors are professional and are passionate about helping students reach their educational and career goals.
Accountability - We hold ourselves and others accountable while acting with integrity.
Continuous Improvement - We learn from our mistakes and from each other through sharing best practices and seeking self-development.
Community Engagement - We operate with a sense of responsibility to enrich the lives of our students, colleagues, and the greater community.
Transparency - We engage in transparent teaching and learning to promote students’ understanding, foster better communication, build self-efficacy, and ultimately, student achievement.
