TriDistrict programs have been developed locally with TriDistrict school, community, and business partners, and through TriDistrict membership in the CAPS Network.

TriDistrict schools and partners are collaborating as never before in order to change the high school experience.  We are working together to support students in exploring their interests and passions, and immersing them in local business and industries.  As students learn on-site at local businesses, they develop and practice both academic and professional skills that will propel then into their future.

What is CAPS and what is the CAPS Network?

“Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) programs are nationally recognized, innovative high school programs. Students fast forward into their future and are fully immersed in a professional culture, solving real world problems, using industry standard tools and are mentored by actual employers, all while receiving high school and college credit. CAPS is an example of how business, community and public education can partner to produce personalized learning experiences that educate the workforce of tomorrow, especially in high skill, high demand jobs.” 

It is through these partnerships that the TriDistrict is proud to offer a growing slate of courses for the that are responsive to community and workforce demands.  These courses are open to all TriDistrict Juniors and Seniors that are on-track to graduate with their class and have an interest in the industry connected to their course.  Students must also commit to a higher level of accountability in areas of attendance, behavior, and flexibility as we are frequently out in our community.  This is especially the case in the second semester of our courses, as students are at internship sites for 80% of the class.
