Description:

Coordinated Career Academic Education (CCAE) and Project Success (PS) are support services designed for students from special populations as identified in the Federal Carl D. Perkins legislation. Through participation in a CCAE and/or PS program, students who are identified as at-risk of dropping out learn about the world of work and how to hone their employability skills. These support services provide opportunities for students to sharpen their academic and employability skills. Students develop confidence, maturity, and self-esteem through meeting academic challenges, completing projects, and participating in a Career and Technical Student Organization.
