How to Join MADCAPS

MADCAPS opens to a new class of incoming senior members (mothers) and junior members (daughters) every fall. Membership requirements include: 

  • Junior members must be entering 6th grade (see exceptions below)
  • Prospective members must reside in zip codes 92103, 92106, 92107 or 92110 at the time of application
  • Prospective members must submit their interest form and application by any stated deadlines 
  • Prospective members must attend a new member information meeting

The membership process occurs over the fall and winter of the sixth-grade year. The incoming class is welcomed in the spring, and they begin participating in 7th-grade philanthropy work that summer.

Once a member is accepted to a MADCAPS incoming class, their membership will continue along with their class for six years (7th-12th grade), as long as they stay in good standing. There is not another membership opportunity, except for two exceptions: 

  • Older sisters (in 7th - 12th grade) who are not curent junior members are eligible to join their own age's class if they join at the same time as a 6th-grade sibling
  •  If a class membership drops below a certain level, it may open up to new members. This is not a common occurence, but will be announced on this page if it does occur.
