The Caperton Center for School and Business Partnerships

Though not a brick-and-mortar building, the Caperton Center for School and Business Partnerships will provide a permanent home for programs that leverage the time and talent of business leaders across the state to strengthen education.

The Caperton Center’s purpose is to develop and sustain school-business partnerships that promote student success. It will build on the innovative leadership and strong collaborative approach of Governor Gaston Caperton to impact countless West Virginia students.

Looking ahead, the Caperton Center will focus on three primary goals:

Revitalization – The Caperton Center will complete a gap analysis of all schools’ existing business
partnerships and craft a plan to revitalize and sustain their impact on students and communities

Equity & Access – With a focus on helping traditionally under-served students, the Caperton Center
will help foster new business partnerships specifically aimed at strengthening student equity and
access to quality education through a broad array of programs, services, and events.

Innovation – The Caperton Center will have the flexibility to respond quickly to new challenges and
direct resources to emerging priorities – more important now than ever before.

By making a gift to the Caperton Center, you can help prepare West Virginia students to be productive citizens, pursue additional education and training, and begin a career.
