Educational Opportunities

School systems within the Capital Area are strongly committed to the educational, social and personal development of our children. Our schools are noted for fine academic programs, which have prepared students for the best colleges in the country. Several Capital area communities are upgrading schools to assure the best educational opportunities for our children. To meet the needs of a diverse student population, our schools offer special needs and honors programs, as well as alternative programs for students interested in exploring non-traditional environments. For more information, contact the Superintendent's Office of the City or Town of interest.
