Our Goal:

By 2025, 60‚Äč% of Capital Area residents will obtain a postsecondary degree, technical certification or valuable credential.



The Capital Area College Access Network (Capital Area CAN) plans to increase the college attainment rate of graduating seniors, particularly low-income and first-generation students, from the Lansing School District by creating a college-going culture. Partners in creating the college-going culture are the Lansing School District, higher education institutions, business leaders, economic development organizations, funders, youth service organizations, students, and their families.

The FUTURE Awaits

Education is an investment in your future. The amount of time spent preparing for college can translate into increased career satisfaction and higher earnings than for those who only complete high school.
