College Assistance Program (CAP)

Welcome to Ms. Evans’ CAP (College Assistance Program) Page. The College Assistance Program is a unique postsecondary advisory program unique to Miami-Dade County Public Schools. The specialized focus of the program enables CAP advisors, such as Ms. Evans, to serve students more effectively because of their specific expertise in this field. It is one the few college-help services in schools nationwide that initiates contact with the students and works with them throughout their post-secondary journey, from exploration to research to testing to admissions and ultimately financial aid and scholarships.
