CAP Students

College Access Program (CAP)

The College Access Program (CAP) was a three-week summer enrichment residential program designed and coordinated by the School of Education (the School) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW). Consistently ranked in the top ten schools and colleges of education in national studies, the School prepares students for teaching, the health professions, and careers in the arts. In addition to several core education programs, about half of the School’s students are enrolled in fine art, dance, counseling, occupational therapy and exercise science programs. Accordingly, the purpose of the CAP was to provide exposure and enrichment opportunities for high school students to help prepare them for college and education-related careers. The School continues to do so through a new program called Precollege Excellence in Education Program (PEEP).

If you are interested in participating, consider this new program.
