St. Louis CAPS Business Partners Host Informational Sessions

This time of year high schools students are finalizing their course selections for the following school year. For current 10th and 11th grade students this means considering enrolling in one of the four courses offered through St. Louis CAPS. Interaction with business and industry partners on a regular basis is a key component that separates the St. Louis CAPS program from other course offerings and programs. To help prospective students get a sense of what it is like to work with business and industry partners, St. Louis CAPS was  fortunate to have them host informational meetings. The following business partners hosted an informational session for the St. Louis CAPS course they directly support.
