Through CAP, students meet high school graduation requirements and earn college credits, all while in their high school classroom during the regular school day. CAP courses are taught by high school instructors who meet the same criteria as USI adjunct faculty, and more than 40 courses in English, history, biology, chemistry, economics, foreign language, health professions, journalism, and math are available.
