College & Career Academy Support Network

High school: Make it fair, make it real.


CCASN’s Mission:

  • build capacity of educators and communities to enact research-based strategies for student success now and in college, career, and civic life;
  • collect and disseminate evidence on student outcomes and exemplary practices;
  • promote policies to make education fair and real.

Since 1998 CCASN has been working to increase educational opportunities that offer each young person support and guidance, productive engagement in the world outside of school, and preparation for both college and careers. This research-based strategy has been effective for hundreds of thousands of teenagers, including low-income students of color.

CCASN offers professional development, coaching, resource materials, and technical assistance for secondary educators, schools, and districts. CCASN also conducts research to document and improve practice, and advises policy makers at all levels.
