The CCA Difference
The Central Carolina Academy has a rigorous, college preparatory academic focus Staff teaches students at high levels. It is essential for students to build a solid learning foundation beginning in middle school so they can be well prepared to take college-level courses in the North Carolina Career and College Promise (CCP) through a partnership with Central Carolina Community College as juniors and seniors. The CCA academic structure maximizes the CCP program.
Teachers work together in vertical teams to ensure the curriculum is building in order for the rigor and resources to meet students where they are emotionally and academically. The ninth and tenth grade years focus on students completing all math courses required for high school graduation along with a majority of other core courses and two units of a world language. Extra tutoring time and seminars that teach durable skills are additional elements of school's academic program.
Students who work diligently, take advantage of resources, are willing to develop resiliency through challenges, and work to hone the durable skills (skills such as good study habits, time management, organization, tenacity, and self-motivation) will be successful at Central Carolina Academy. CCA’s academic goal by high school graduation is that the majority of students complete CCP Pathways and earn transferable college credits. Forming collaborations with area businesses to explore internship opportunities is also a goal area.
