Harvard Club of Seattle

Crimson Achievement Program (CAP)


Where Access Meets Inclusion! cap

Support local students and schools! The Harvard Club of Seattle Crimson Achievement Program provides high-potential high school students (CAP Scholars) with the opportunity to gain new learning, receive mentorship support from Harvard students and recent grads, and participate in enrichment opportunities that support their path to college, including a 9th-grade field trip to Harvard and other Boston Area colleges (see photo at right). Drawn from Western Washington school districts that serve predominantly low-income populations, CAP Scholars, in turn, invest in the success of their communities by providing at least ten annual hours of peer mentorship and other service that promotes the college and career readiness of fellow students. Read the Harvard Gazette article and view the video.

CAP Partner District:  Led by the 2018 National Superintendent of the Year, Dr. Susan Enfield, EdM '02, EdD '08, Highline Public Schools has made great strides in raising its graduation rate and forging high-impact partnerships with community-invested companies like Alaska Airlines. The Harvard Club of Seattle is honored to be counted among those partners that help advance Highline's Promise to ensure "Every student in Highline Public Schools is known by name, strength and need and graduates prepared for the future they choose." To learn more about how collaborative partnerships like CAP can help expand educational opportunities and close the achievement gap, please join us for our 2019 ANNUAL DINNER on Thursday, June 20, featuring Dr. Enfield and Alaska Airlines President Ben Minicucci, AMP '12. (Special thanks to Alaska Airlines for donating two roundtrip ticket vouchers in support of CAP!)
