Preparing Adults for College and Career Transitions (PACCT)



 The College and Career Preparations (CCP) class is a fast-paced, intensive academic program that focuses on math, reading writing, and college readiness skills. Through the guided support of peers, instructors, and mentors, CCP transitions adults to higher education and new careers by helping students aquire skills necessary for long-term college and career success.

  • Acquire skills necessary for long-term college and career success.
  • Prepare for college placement exams and coursework.
