The College Access Program is a collaboration between colleges and universities primarily in the 1890 Land-Grant System and Learn4Life and FLEX High schools. Recently CAP has expanded to include colleges outside of the 1890 System to add more post-secondary options for Learn4Life students - you! Together, CAP and collaborating Higher Education Institutions nationwide, seek to strengthen and promote college access, readiness, enrollment, and persistence opportunities for all students and alumni of our supported networks.


Being a Learn4Life or FLEX High student has many advantages, access to a network of colleges and universities is now one of them! We are organizing many events to help you decide which college is right for you. Through the College Access Program, you have access to college representatives at events in your school or on-campus. We provide transportation to campus tours which include many activities to give students the real college experience. We have the latest news regarding on-campus opportunities, programs, and events providing students access to college facilities, professors, clubs, and civic and campus organizations. College Fairs and FAFSA nights are regularly available. CAP assists you with the preparation and coordination of placement tests and waivers of application fees. Admission requirements may include a combination of GPA, SAT, and ACT scores. Due to Covid-19, many colleges and universities have temporarily adapted their admission requirement policies.


CAP works with colleges and universities to provide you with the best support and facilitate a smooth transition to college. We will continue to reach out to alumni to offer ongoing academic and social support, help with needed paperwork, and ensure that prior to the start of each semester, we connect enrolled students with counselors and advisors to answer any questions. Once students enrolled at their dream college or university, all participating schools will provide CAP students with tutoring, supplemental instruction, peer-to-peer mentoring, academic progress reports, work-study options for qualified students, and information on student housing options.


Learn4Life and FLEX High students and alumni are eligible to receive scholarships to attend many of the participating colleges. We are committed to helping you financially so that you can focus on your education. Please visit the Paying for College tab on the Counseling & Alumni page for more information.
