CSU California Academic Partnership Program

What is CAPP?

CAPP's Mission

The California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) was established by the California State Legislature in 1984 for the purpose of developing "cooperative efforts to improve the academic quality of public secondary schools with the objective of improving the preparation of all students for college."

The California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) is an intersegmental program whose purpose is to develop cooperative efforts to improve the academic quality of public secondary schools with the objective of improving the preparation of all students for college. CAPP supports partnerships and collaborations that focus on improving the academic preparation and college-readiness of California students and that serve schools with low student participation in institutions of postsecondary education or with a concentration of students from groups underrepresented in postsecondary education.

Established by statute in 1984, CAPP is administered by the Trustees of the California State University in cooperation with Regents of the University of California, the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Each of these segments, and the California Student Aid Commission, appoint members to an advisory committee that plays a major role in setting CAPPÕs criteria for awarding grants and selecting applicants for receipt of CAPP grants.

CAPP supports a variety of statewide, regional, district and site-based projects, located in urban, rural and suburban areas. For more information on current and past initiatives go to the Projects page.
