College Advancement Program
The College Advancement Program (CAP) was started in 2005 in an effort to promote successful on-time high school graduation and pursuit of higher education. Beginning in the 10th grade, participants aggressively learn basic living skills (cooking, cleaning, time management), pursue regular employment, obtain a drivers license, study basic financial skills, research college and career choices and assume leadership roles on campus. In their senior year, participants transition from the high school cottage to the CAP apartment, continuing to work on their personal goals with greater independence.
Boys Farm plays an active role in the child’s life all the way through post-high school education. Beyond an on-campus apartment, graduates receive support in financial management skills, college and career planning, academic scholarships, social and spiritual support, and independent living skills. This ongoing relationship promotes long term positive outcomes as participants successfully launch into independent adulthood.
