  • The CCC curriculum is well thought out, accessible and very relevant. The students gained an appreciation for the AVID strategies used in class as a means to gaining the knowledge they need to achieve their goal of attending college. For my 7th graders, the CCC curriculum made college preparation a much less daunting task because, at this early age, they understand better what lies ahead of them.
