The purpose of CAPE’s personalized, integrated program is to support the learner’s acquisition of cross-curricular competencies, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and other academic skills while also developing personal skills such as relationship building, self-advocacy, creation of opportunities, risk-taking, and achieving goals.
CAPE intertwines core learning. The program foundations come from both social studies and science. Language skills are developed within the social studies concepts while the mathematics skills merge with the science concepts. Learning experiences are added to enrich the learning and help the material flourish to become more meaningful, more interactive, and more personal for the students.
CAPE’s personalized program (referred to as individualized program in the past) is a research-based, data driven, purposeful, collaborative, and cyclical process through which each student’s personalized program is developed, implemented, monitored and re-evaluated to maximize the achievement of personal and academic goals through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
