The path to college starts here.

We operate based on a simple principle: each student entrusted in our care must be prepared for higher education and the career of their choice by ensuring mastery of the skills, knowledge, and tools needed to succeed in the 21st century global economy.

We’re focused on providing a world-class education that motivates and inspires students to achieve success in high school, college and beyond. We take special care to ensure our students are ethical, literate, well-rounded and self-sufficient citizens who contribute not only to their schools, but to their community.

Our scholars participate in civic engagement activities that increase their exposure to experiential learning. Our students are true examples of servant leaders who take pride in volunteering their time to improve the community they love.

We are proud to say that more than 90 percent of our scholars graduate high school on time. Each of our graduating seniors has been accepted into at least one institution of higher learning. And, during the 2016-17 school year, we earned the distinction of being the most academically improved school in the state. Period.

Not only do our scholars routinely put their academic talents on display by competing in arts and engineering activities, we offer a full menu of athletics including football, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, track & field, and baseball.


Our mission is to provide a world-class education that motivates students to achieve high academic standards, enjoy learning and develop as ethical, literate, well-rounded and self-sufficient citizens who contribute actively to their communities. 


We expect every member of the Capitol family – students, teachers, parents, staff members, school leaders, and board members – to exemplify the following values in everything that they do:  


Be honest and fair to others.


Choose right over wrong. Accept consequences for your actions.


Know that you can achieve.


Help others.


Find your purpose and stay true to it.


Face problems with understanding, not anger or violence.


Do not allow anyone, not even yourself, to steer you off the road to success. Be determined to achieve.


Hold others in high regard and understand that you can learn from them. See each person’s value.
