What We Do

Founded in 2006, Cappex has been the leading college planning resource for students across the country. Using proprietary technology and college and financial aid expertise, we have helped students get to college with confidence. In fact, we've helped more than 11 million students get to day one at the college that’s right for them and assisted more than 1,000 colleges in reaching their enrollment goals.

FULL COVERAGE

With multiple medical plans, dental and vision coverage, health savings accounts, life insurance, and more, you have options. We offer coverage that suits your ever-changing needs - and your budget.

A SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT

Cappexians love to have a good time. That's why we throw a killer holiday party, a summer outing, and other events throughout the year. And not to mention all the frequent, fun activities thought up by the Cappex Social Committee – including cook-offs, contests, competitions, and more.

CONVENIENT DOWNTOWN LOCATION

No matter if you take the bus, "L", or train from the suburbs, it's easy to get to our office. We're in the heart of downtown, surrounded by some of Chicago’s best lunch spots (not to mention a hub of food trucks).

FLEXIBILITY

We understand that sometimes life circumstances may make it difficult to come into the office from 8:30am-5pm. That’s why we’re flexible to accommodate your occasional work from home or flex hour needs.

PLENTY OF TIME OFF

Cappexians work hard every day, but we also highly value “me time.” Not only will you get ample paid time off that progressively grows the longer you’re here, but we also offer Summer Hours, and give the entire company the whole week off between Christmas and the New Year!

WE INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE

We help students create a financially-stable future every day. Why wouldn't we do the same for our employees? We offer an employer-matching 401(k) (yes, that means free money) to help you build wealth for retirement.

UNLIMITED SNACKS

What does your snack time or coffee break look like? Probably not as good as ours - we stay fully stocked with premium coffee, soft drinks, sparkling water (yes, that means virtually every La Croix flavor), and a kitchen full of both healthy and indulgent snacks to stay energized throughout the day.

CASUAL EVERY DAY

Why limit it to Fridays? Around here, every day is casual. Wear shorts and flip-flops year-round (good luck in the winter), or don a suit. No judgement, we let our work do the talking.

CappExpectations

Our CappExpectations drive our actions, both as individuals and as a company.

ACT WITH URGENCY

We work in a fast-changing, highly competitive marketplace. To stay ahead of the curve, we must be agile and act with urgency.

COLLABORATE AND BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

We encourage collaboration and strive to build relationships in and outside of the office. Cappexians are observant. Thoughtful. Approachable. Most importantly, they're just great people.

BE THE TRUSTED EXPERT

To be the trusted expert, our team members have to grow and learn new things every day. Cappexians don't just coast - they're always seeking additional knowledge and using the resources available to them. Be curious. Ask questions. Most importantly, learn!

FIND THE SIGNAL – STAY FOCUSED ON DAY ONE

Our missions is to help students get to day one at the college that’s right for them. Everything we do pushes this mission forward, improving the experience for students and ensuring we do what we promise on a daily basis.
