Citizenship
Living our core values, each month we choose a different character trait to focus on in our classrooms and around the school. We then reward a student from each homeroom whom exemplifies that trait. Congratulations to all our Citizens of the Month and to the CAPS student body that has outstanding character! This month's character trait is INITIATIVE
Community Service
 

Here at CAPS we believe in a high quality education, but also that students are ultimately here to learn how to be exceptional citizens and give back to the community.

Our high school students are required to complete a minimum of 100 hours of community service during their time at CAPS. Students volunteer at local animal shelters, the zoo, to clean up our island, during school events, and around the school campus. 

The school and PTA work to give back to the island each year. In past years our CAPS community has helped the local Lion's Club Bon Bisiña program make food packages for the less fortunate, started a recycling initiative at the school, donated student made art work to the Saint Elisabeth Hospital, and collaborated with the FOL firefighters and their Toys for Tots program. Annually, CAPS's participates in the island wide "Clean up Curaçao" program, the Ronald McDonald House fundraiser, and reef clean-ups.
