GOCAPS is an excellent program that is offered to junior and senior students that are in the area. GOCAPS is taken place in Springfield and Branson.  Medicine and Health Care, Business and Entrepreneurship, IT and software solutions, engineering and manufacturing, and Teacher Education are all the engaging career stands GOCAPS presents to students who are interested. The students involved in this leading program meet at the business partners’ sites for 2 ½ hours, five days a week all year to absorb information and get hands-on experience on the careers they take enjoyment to.

By participating, students will earn both high school and college credit, and will be graded on project work, self, peer, and business assessments, and professional skills, including attendance and dress code. It is essential for students to dress business casual every day to get the grade they desire.

The participant’s tuition for the program is paid by the student’s home district. Springfield Public Schools is the fiscal agent for the GOCAPS program. GOCAPS is governed by a board composed of area business leaders and superintendents. The board is given authority to manage this program through a cooperative memorandum of understanding approved by all participating school districts. The high school districts in involved are Bolivar, Branson, Central, Fair Grove, Glendale, Hillcrest, Kickapoo, Logan-Rogersville,  Marshfield , Nixa, Ozark, Reeds Spring, Republic, Spokane, Strafford, and Willard.
