 The College Anchor Program (CAP) is a great opportunity for the students and parents  to learn the steps needed to successfully prepare and transition to college.

During scheduled workshops, families will learn about steps needed to prepare for college and resources available within the community. Sessions will be led by experienced counselors and staff from local universities and community colleges. Topics will focus on academic planning, goal setting, scholarships and financial aid. All high students and their families are encouraged to attend.

The College Anchor Program is a past recipient of grant funding provided by the Junior League of Fayetteville.  Through their support and private donations FO2W provides training and dorm trunks for high school seniors at reduced or no costs.
