The Cappex Story
At Cappex, our mission is to help you get to day one at the college that’s right for you. This quest was born out of our own frustration with the college search and selection process. We realized that inherent barriers were limiting many students’ access to education, and we needed to do something about it.
Since our inception, in 2006 in Chicago, IL, the Cappex team has been working to build and deploy the most comprehensive and easy-to-use school and scholarship search platform in the industry.
Over the years, we’ve had many successes (and learning experiences) as we worked to create our best-in-class tool for students. We’ve conducted user behavioral research, interviewed high school students about their experiences, and continually tried to improve algorithms in an effort to deliver invaluable insight to students.
In 2020, Cappex was acquired by EAB, an industry leader dedicated to driving transformative change through data-driven insights and best-in-class capabilities in enrollment; student success; data & analytics; institutional strategy; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
EAB’s insights on enrollment data, behavioral research, and experiential marketing services allow Cappex to craft better resources targeting exactly what college-bound students need in order to succeed at every step in their journey to higher education.
Today, Cappex is known as the go-to resource for all-things college. Our unique tools, resources, and expert advice are built to help students like you make their highest impact on the world through education.
