If you’d like to learn more about the CAPS program, check out this video:

Students interested in being considered for the St. Charles County CAPS program for the 2024-2025 school year must complete an online application.

Interested students should review their high school credits with their counselor to ensure participation in the SCC CAPS program, based on high school credits, is doable.  In addition to the SCC CAPS application, the SCC CAPS selection committee will also review the attendance, grades, and discipline of each applicant.  Students applying must also provide ample information (depth & details) in their responses to the open-ended questions.  To learn more about each strand, check out our 2023-2024 SCC CAPS Course Catalog or go to the “courses” tab on this website.
