College Assistance Program

Welcome to Ms. Gilman’s CAP (College Assistance Program) Page.  The College Assistance Program is a unique postsecondary advisory program unique to Miami-Dade County Public Schools. The specialized focus of the program enables CAP advisors such as Ms. Gilman to serve students more effectively because of their specific expertise in this field. It is one the few college-help services in schools nationwide that initiates contact with the students and works with them throughout their post-secondary journey, from exploration to research to testing to admissions and ultimately financial aid and scholarships.  Ms. Gilman’s 19 years in college advising have proven beneficial in helping her achieve one of her main priorities each day:  to communicate effectively with colleges and universities on behalf of Coral Reef students.
