Mission and History
Capital Partners for Education aims to help educationally at-risk students fulfill their potential in quality school environments. To this end, the directors, staff, and mentors of Capital Partners for Education are committed to increasing the educational opportunities available to participating students and their families through a unique combination of scholarships and mentor relationships.
Capital Partners for Education (CPE) began in 1993 as the vision of its founders, Ambassador Henry D. Owen and Theodore A. Schwab. Owen and Schwab sought to break the cycle of poverty by helping low-income youth in the Washington, DC area gain greater access to a quality education. In that first year, Owen, then a senior advisor to Smith Barney, and Schwab, a financial consultant with Smith Barney provided six students with partial scholarships to private high schools. Since then, CPE has grown and evolved into a dynamic college preparatory scholarship and mentoring program that has established itself firmly in the Washington, DC area. We are currently serving 75 students and building upon our 98% success rate of graduates that go on to college.
