Neha Gupta

Program Director


Neha is as local as they get. Born and raised in Montgomery County, she attended Walt Whitman High School where she took CapEd's SAT/ACT prep course and absolutely loved it. She then studied Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park (go Terps!), focusing on education and opportunity expansion. While there, she was involved in an array of extracurriculars, ranging from tutoring and volunteering to competing with her dance team. After college, she decided to join CapEd as a full time director, and hasn't looked back since. Neha's many passions include color-coded notes, dad jokes and pick-up basketball.
