As an admission professional at a Catholic college or university, you engage students and their families daily, providing them with information that gives them full understanding of the benefits of Catholic higher education. The National CCAA exists to support you in your mission to support students and their families.
Benefits of membership in the National CCAA include promotion of your institution, professional development, access to relevant enrollment research, and collective recruitment travel opportunities.
"We are proud to collaborate with an organization that educates students and families throughout their college search process to assist them in making strong, informed decisions about higher education."
– Matt Lyons, Admission Counselor, Gonzaga University (WA)
The National CCAA at NACAC
Representatives from our member institutions are invited to the Membership Meeting and Breakfast to network with colleagues and hear the latest in enrollment management strategies and research. During the conference, our members and secondary school and independent counselors are invited to join us for an unforgettable evening at the annual National CCAA Catholic Colleges Reception.
Our budget-friendly recruitment programs are designed specifically for our member institutions, connecting your admission representatives with students and parents, as well as secondary school counselors, in Puerto Rico and Latin America.
The National CCAA Scholarship
Encourage applicants to your institution to apply for the National CCAA scholarship. Each scholarship is worth $1,000, and scholarships are awarded to college-bound high school seniors from various geographic regions attending one of our member institutions in the fall.
Launched in spring 2023, our partnership with MARKETview provides additional enrollment data analysis, quarterly data insights, and Catholic cohort specific enrollment data for our members.
National CCAA Lifetime in Catholic Education Achievement Awards
In fall 2023, we presented the first CCAA Lifetime Achievement in Catholic Education Awards to recipients on both the college and high school sides.
