Center for Advanced Professional Studies

The Andover school district Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) program is housed in a new two-story building and incorporates a large event space, multiple collaboration spaces within a commons area, classrooms, labs, and administrative spaces.

Local employers mentor students using industry tools and techniques in the following areas: marketing, business, information technology, engineering, medical professions, and the Butler Community College SEM program.

The Medical Professions program includes biotech labs, nursing classrooms, anatomy, sports medicine, and collaborative workstations. A classroom with an Anatomage table (28”x74” interactive display board for looking at a full-size digital representation of the human body) is also included; as well as an Application Lab with a hospital bed and exam tables connected to an interactive “dummy” computer for practical application.
