Central Alabama Community College is well-known throughout the nation for its excellent reputation in offering a variety of programs of study. Since its founding in 1965, the College has constantly sought to fulfill its mission of providing opportunities for the development of knowledge and skills through programs that are affordable, accessible, and responsive to the needs of the
community, business, industry and government. Indeed, the College has played a pivotal role in empowering individuals to develop their full potential and demonstrate a sense of civic responsibility and community service.
The American Association of Community and Junior Colleges recently emphasized the significance and impact of the community, technical and junior colleges by stating that “during the fall term well over 10 million individuals were taking one or more classes in community, technical and junior college – colleges which are experiencing a nationwide enrollment increase of approximately six percent this year.” Thus, CACC faces the challenge with community college leaders throughout the nation of providing quality higher education to an increasing number of students.
Students at CACC receive personal attention from highly qualified instructors and counselors. Class size, an average of 19 students, and individual attention from faculty members help each student become academically prepared to ensure a successful future. As a two-year college, CACC offers an associate degree which enables the student to transfer to a senior college with junior standing and all general education requirements fulfilled. The technical division of the college offers courses which lead to a certificate or associate in applied science degree, enabling the student to go directly into the workforce qualified to meet immediate employment responsibilities.
Central Alabama Community College is proud of its tradition of providing programs of academic quality and is committed to maintaining a campus climate that reflects excellence, professionalism, caring and friendliness. In this atmosphere every effort is made to see that students learn, that teachers teach and that staff members serve. As the College prepares for the 21st century its objective is unchanged – quality and excellence in all that we do.
