The Cecil Alternative Program (CAP) is a 45-day IAEP—Interim Alternative Education Program—for students in Cecil County with behavioral issues who require additional supports in order to be successful. Teachers and related service providers in this program mirror a student’s home school by administering the same educational and social-emotional interventions, but they do so in a more therapeutic and highly structured environment.

At CAP, the behavioral/counseling component is the primary focus and is based on an individual and school-wide behavior management system with built-in incentives and rewards for positive behavior. In accordance with this, students have access to individual counseling outside of their regularly scheduled services when needed. By offering a small classroom environment, with a high teacher-to-student ratio and one-to-one counseling services, this program allows students the ability to quickly transition back to their home school. Future progress and success are ensured through a transitional track once the students return to the public school.

The Cecil Alternative Program is proudly accredited by AdvancED. Our accreditation demonstrates our dedication to continuous improvement in all that we do. We also are proud to be affiliated with Catapult Learning, which has received Corporate Accreditation through AdvancED.
