New CAPS Course Offered to Junior and Senior Students for 2019-2020
Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, AMHS juniors and seniors will have the opportunity to enroll in CAPS. This is a course that will allow students real-world experiences in a career of their interests. We are proud to partner with Custer CAPABLE and all other Custer county school districts to bring this program to our area. According to the CAPS Mission Statement, "The 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 credit. CAPS is an example of how business, community and public education can partner to produce personalized learning experiences that educate the workforce of tomorrow, especially in high skill, high demand jobs."The program relies on strong partnerships from the local business community. In addition to these opportunities, CAPS schools also have access to resources from larger international businesses such as Cerner, Burns and McDonnell, and the Kauffman Foundation.
Mrs. Larsen will be the facilitator for the A-M CAPS program. On Monday, January 28th, we will host Gregg Brown, CAPS Director at our school. The meeting will take place in the high school library at 6:00pm. He will discuss the CAPS program, and how it can help students be successful during and after high school. We would love to see any interested parents join us that evening.
