Blue Valley’s Center for Advanced Professional Studies earns national recognition

P21, The Partnership for 21st Century Learning, designated Blue Valley’s Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) as an exemplar school for 2016-2017. CAPS received this honor for exemplary 21st century learning practices in preparing students for success in college, career and life.

P21’s 21st Century Learning Exemplar Program searches for and shares the stories of schools and districts that have successfully transformed student learning through innovative practices such as distributed leadership and community partnerships.

“Being named a 21st Century Learning Exemplar through P21 is a tremendous honor for CAPS,” said Corey Mohn, CAPS Executive Director. “Our program strives to be a ‘north star’ inspiring students to find passion and purpose through self-discovery and exploration of professional paths. This designation will motivate our program to keep pushing the bleeding edge of innovation in K-12 education to maximize positive impact in our world.”

“All learners deserve to grow in a 21st Century Learning environment,” said Dr. Helen Soulé, P21 Executive Director. “It is P21’s vision for the innovative practices in education exhibited by all P21 Exemplars to be replicated across the country and world.”

In the Spring of 2017, a case study on CAPS and other 2016-17 P21 Exemplars will be released and available at
