Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. is a supporter of St. Mary’s County public school’s College Access Program. The CAP provides two years of classes and support during lunch periods to help junior and senior high school students navigate the college entrance and financing process. The program serves all interested students, with a special focus on students who will be the first in their family to attend college.

Booz Allen Hamilton appoints employees who are recent college graduates as ambassadors who attend CAP sessions, helping students prepare for college. The ambassadors share their own stories and help students understand the benefits of a college education and the steps needed to be successful in choosing and applying to college, financing a college education and getting the most out of their college experience.

For instance, through the efforts of Leonardtown High School Ambassador Katrina King, Lindsay Frazier, lead associate at Booz Allen Hamilton and 1999 graduate of Leonardtown High School, presented a resume writing workshop that she prepared for CAP students at LHS.

The ambassador for Great Mills High School is Esha Greer. Chopticon High School is served by Ambassador Katy Beard.

Booz Allen Hamilton also provides financial support that helps train the CAP staff, update curriculum, take students on field trips to colleges and purchase materials for the program.
