This year-long course covers topics important to teens as they transition from youth to adulthood: the ability to think, make good choices, regulate their emotions, handle social conflict, consolidate their identities, and learn enough about the world to move into adulthood with dignity and grace.

CCAPS focuses on financial literacy and provides students with the knowledge and skills to be prudent with their resources. CCAPS speakers have included a marketing company CEO, a financial planner, a Franciscan nun, and the Clerk of the US Bankruptcy Court who demonstrated the consequences of credit abuse.
