Andover Center for Advanced Professional Studies

Network Info

a model of success

Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) programs are nationally recognized, innovative high school programs. Students fast forward into their future and are fully immersed in a professional culture, solving real world problems, using industry-standard tools and are mentored by actual employers, all while receiving high school and college credit. Andover CAPS is in the design phase to determine how best to give students real-world experience while also meeting the needs of businesses in the Wichita area and beyond. Pilot projects launched in fall of 2019, with the full program launching in the 2020-21 school year. We hope you'll be a part of our journey!

Refining Education

CAPS focuses on active learning. Students are exposed to a unique blend of problem-based, project-based and design-based learning while practicing professional skills taught throughout the program. The program strives to remain on the cutting-edge of evolving workforce needs, working closely with business and post-secondary partners to develop course work that reflects emerging trends.

In the Beginning

Community Investment

CAPS programs establish and nurture relationships with business partners that are mutually beneficial, sustainable, coordinated and multi-faceted. Our partners help shape curriculum, provide projects, support professional development, invest in equipment and supplies and provide job shadow opportunities, speakers, mentors and internships.
