District Of Columbia College Access Program

aka DC-CAP   |   Washington, DC   |  www.dccap.org

Mission

The mission of DC-CAP is to encourage and enable DC public high school students to enter and graduate from college. The need for the DC College Access Program is urgent. Historically, less than 55 percent of D.C. public high school freshmen earned a high school diploma and only one-third pursued any type of post-secondary education. Only 15% of these students graduated from college. The goal of DC-CAP is to work with and convince at-risk students that college is a viable option that they can pursue with the proper motivation, guidance, and financial assistance.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

DC-CAP began operating in the fall of 1999 with advisors in six D.C. public senior high schools. Within a year the program expanded to all 16 of the city's public high schools. The school based advisors build awareness with students from 9th through 12th grade on the importance of a college education. They counsel students on selecting a college, on completing admission and financial aid applications, and identifying and securing financial resources to pay for their college education. The organization?s college retention advisors continue to motivate, mentor, and guide students through five years of college. In addition, DC-CAP provides students with Last Dollar Awards, up to $2,000 per year for five years, on the basis of unmet need. Last Dollar Awards are designed to close the financial needs gap between students? resources, financial aid and actual college expenses.
