College Career Connection (CCC) at HSA is specifically designed to empower high school students. Through a combination of essential skills development and real-world experiences, students will be well-prepared for the next steps in their educational and professional journey.

Setting Students Up for Success

Whether students are aiming for a prestigious university or seeking immediate employment, CCC provides tailored guidance and resources. Beyond the classroom, engage with the local community. Volunteer opportunities, field trips, and internships allow students to apply their skills, make a positive impact, and build meaningful connections.

    • To participate, students must attend at least two hours per week in either or both sessions.

In CCC, students must participate in concurrent or dual enrollment opportunities. This allows students to earn college credits while still in high school, giving them a head start on their academic journey. Students must enroll in at least three hours of concurrent/dual enrollment at Pikes Peak State College, University of Colorado Colorado Springs, or Denver Metropolitan State University of Denver. The concurrent/dual enrollment application must be completed by April 1, or the student will be unenrolled from CCC.

Students who do not meet attendance requirements may be removed from Concurrent/Dual Enrollment programs.
