HOW IT WORKS
You and the CC team discuss your school’s needs and we customize our program accordingly:
We identify the right Success Coach/es to work with your teachers, students and guidance staff, in class and in the college office, up to five days per week.
CC1 instruction is based on our Common Core-aligned curriculum and can be combined with Career Connections or CC2, depending on the age and needs of your students.
