The St. John Valley College Access Program (CAP) is a college transition program for aspiring college students who may desire attending college but never had the opportunity, weren’t sure they would be successful, or who have been out of high school for a while and are unsure whether or not they have the skill set to prosper. The program addresses all of these issues while providing developmental classes in math, reading, writing, and computer applications taught by local Adult Education instructors on the University of Maine at Fort Kent campus. In addition to these developmental classes the program also includes a variety of college readiness and preparation workshops covering such subjects as stress and time management, the language of college, study skills, career decision-making, applying for admission and financial aid, and college planning.
CAP takes place over the course of 15 weeks, or one semester, and is a fantastic chance to experience student life on campus. Voluntary academic mentoring for individuals who desire extra assistance is also provided.
