Capac is located on the western edge of St. Clair County, approximately forty-five miles north of Detroit. Capac’s Main Street was once a popular stopping place for those traveling between Port Huron and Flint on horseback. At that time, farms surrounded the downtown district. Although evidence of this bygone era still exists on Main Street, Capac is steadily changing from an agricultural community with a thriving downtown, to a bedroom community for the cities of Flint and Detroit. While there are still many families who have lived in Capac for generations, they are now outnumbered by those who have relocated from urban areas.
Capac is a growing community with approximately 1590 students enrolled in the public school system. The average income for families is $30,000; the community is fiscally and politically conservative. While taxpayers have generally supported school millage proposals, they demand responsible spending of their tax dollars. Due to the size of the community, the school district is able to work closely and harmoniously with the village municipalities.
Capac is considered to be a middle-class community. Homes in the community average in price from $60,000 to $250,000. The challenges we face are similar to those faced by most rural school districts: growing enrollment, lack of funding due to a limited industrial base, and less parental involvement.
