Whether you are working in a high school or independently with families, you understand the questions and challenges facing students and parents today as they make the right choice for a college or university. We offer resources and support as you guide students through the admission process.
We help cultivate partnerships between you and admission representatives from our member institutions. Our members can help you articulate the value of Catholic higher education; in turn, you have much to offer admission professionals who constantly seek to better understand the needs of incoming students in their college search.
Lead students to the National CCAA Scholarship
Encourage your students to apply for the National CCAA scholarship. Scholarships, each worth $1,000, are awarded each spring to college-bound high school seniors attending one of our member institutions.
Network at the National CCAA Catholic Colleges Reception
We invite secondary school and independent counselors to be our guests, joining admission representatives from National CCAA member institutions for an unforgettable evening at the National CCAA Catholic Colleges Reception at NACAC each fall. We hope to see you there!
"Attending the Catholic Colleges Reception has provided me the opportunity to connect with colleagues at so many of the colleges where my students apply and attend. Members of the National CCAA have become more than colleagues — I consider them friends."
– Leigh Jackson, College Counselor, Assumption High School (Louisville, KY)
