Career and Academic Preparation

Career and Academic Preparation (CAP) offers a variety of courses and programs designed to build skills in reading, writing, oral communication, critical thinking, technology, and mathematics so adults can transition to workforce training or academic transfer programs

Students are prepared to:

  • Earn a high school diploma
  • Pass the General Education Development (GED)
  • Increase English language skills
  • Prepare for college-level courses

Class fees are $25 per quarter

Adult High School Completion is a competency-based high school diploma designed for adult learners (18 and older).
GED® preparation classes are designed for individuals who wish to prepare for the college entrance exam or for the four subject tests included on the General Educational Development (GED®) exam.
Pre-college classes provide a learning environment that assists students in developing skills and confidence that lead to academic and vocational success.
I-BEST - Integrated Basic Education Skills Skills pathway training programs are designed for students to improve their English language or basic skills while earning college-level certificates or two-year degrees. Only certain programs participate in this. Transitional Studies staff can help you determine if the program you are interested in includes these supports.
