The student response to CCC has been very positive so far. For example, students who are reluctant to answer questions are much more likely to answer their peer mentors’ questions and have good discussions.

Teacher, Zoneton Middle School
My students are thriving in high school with 3.5 to 4.0 GPA's. They are taking A.P. and honor classes. They are graduating from the police explorer program. Most importantly, they are taking ownership of their goals. I am very proud of them and I know [Career & College Clubs] is the source behind their individual success stories.
