College Access Plan (CAP)

2021-22 CAP

College Access Plan (CAP) helps PUSD students and families navigate the college process, supporting them from middle school through college graduation. At CAP, there are no requirements for participation, no barriers to higher education, and no limits to what students can achieve.

CAP serves students at all PUSD high schools and offers free drop-in college advising, whether students are interested in attending community college or a four-year college. We also offer two enrolled courses: a College Essay Writing Intensive for seniors in the fall, and a College 101 for Juniors workshop series in the spring.

For more information on CAP’s programs at your school, visit our website at or email us at
