Center for Advanced Professional Studies

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

Local employers will mentor students using industry tools and techniques in the following areas: marketing, business, information technology, engineering, as well as medical professions.

The Medical Professions program will include 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) will also be included; as well as an Application Lab with a hospital bed and exam tables connected to an interactive “dummy” computer for practical application.
