NEW! Our book is updated for the '19-'20 school year!

“We’d like to know more about Cap & Compass.”

Since 2001, Cap & Compass has earned the business of hundreds of colleges, companies and membership-based organizations. Our customers have a common mission to educate and a common desire to connect to their alumni, employees or members.

Our book and app combine your brand with our life skills content. We use humor to get readers engaged and use thoughtful design to get them engaged with you.

The company was founded by two Duke University graduates, who recognized a gap between the subjects learned in the classroom and the challenges faced in the real world.

After figuring out how to explain boring topics (like health insurance and taxes) in an fun way, we created the book, life after school. explained. and the app, Crib Sheet.
