  • Welcome Back Class of 2022!  Have your students drop by the CCC before/after school, at lunch, during Academy, or any free period to create college lists, work on essays, brainstorm about careers, create resumes, reflect on majors, or just decompress. Look out for essay workshops and Common App/UC App sessions. Email for appointments too!
  • Senior Parent Presentation– Mark your calendars! September 8 will be a night to learn about activities and support for the upcoming year!
