GO CAPS Program for high school juniors & seniors

Greater Ozarks Centers for Advanced Professional Studies (GO CAPS) is a unique, yearlong learning experience that allows high school juniors and seniors to test drive future career options. Students develop real world professional skills as they are embedded in partner businesses.

GO CAPS is a consortium of 15 area school districts: Bolivar, Branson, Fair Grove, Logan-Rogersville, Marshfield, Monett (affiliate), Nixa, Ozark, Reeds Spring, Republic, Spokane, Springfield, Strafford, West Plains (affiliate) and Willard. The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce manages the GO CAPS program and Springfield Public Schools serves as the fiscal agent.

GO CAPS gives students the chance to explore their interests in four areas: Engineering and Manufacturing, Entrepreneurship, Medicine and Health Care and Technology Solutions. Students attend a morning session (8-10:30 a.m.) or an afternoon session (Noon-2:30 p.m.) every day throughout the school year. These sessions also allow for dual credit opportunities through Missouri State University and Ozarks Technical Community College.
