Students have the option to explore classes that will give them a jump start towards one of our many professional technical programs. Career planning, development and EdCAP Success classes are key components. Tuition and books are provided at no cost to the student.

What classes will I take in EdCAP?

EdCAP students are enrolled their first two quarters in specialized courses to teach them strategies for success in order to build a strong foundation of goal setting, organizational skills, time management, and critical thinking skills. In addition, students take other courses in English, math, history, etc. which apply towards their high school diploma requirements and/or help them enter a prof-tech program, if they select one.
