The FAP is the result of a generation of students from the Baixo Parnaíba Region and, in particular, from Chapadinha, who had the ideals of providing the children of the land, especially those who did not have the financial conditions to reach the big centers, a professional training. The credibility of this Institution is not only verified by the legitimacy of its documentation, and / or by the averages reached in the evaluation of the National Student Performance Exam (ENADE), but fundamentally by the subjects participating in this experience, which can be verified in the scope of the works developed and in the spaces where the graduates present themselves.

From the work developed at the Institution, it was noticed a change in the behavior of the internal and external academic community, in the course of building their professionalities. An expressive number of professionals trained by this HEI constitutes one of the main factors for the social growth of Chapadinha and the surrounding regions. The relevant presence of these professionals is noted for their performance in companies, in municipal and state education systems, in public and private universities, in leaders of the economic and financial sector, in entrepreneurship and even in intranational exchanges.

It is worth noting, therefore, the pioneering spirit of FAP, which, combining tradition with innovation, aware of the profound social and economic transformations that Brazil and the world have undergone in recent years, had the sensitivity to intervene in the absence of incentives in professional training for the occupation of jobs by the citizens of the city and the region. Such action has renewed the hope and the role of co-authors of the social development of the subjects involved.

To that extent, FAP has been expanding its field of action and seeking, from undergraduate courses, new spaces to contribute to the training of people. In addition, it presents postgraduate studies that respond to the continuous desire for qualification and deepening in knowledge that produce positive impacts and of great repercussion in the respective areas of activity.

The professional identity of the FAP egress is configured in an active subject who, in his trajectory, presents the historical marks of the development of the society in which he is inserted.
