College and Career Advantage (CCA)

Learn about all that Career Technical Education has to offer:
Your Career Guidance Specialist, Ms. Maressa McDonald is here to provide personalized support to help you discover career opportunities and connect you to Career Technical Education courses that support your goals.
How CCA and your Career Guidance Specialist can help:
  • Provide Information on CTE Courses and Pathways
  • Register for After School CCA/CTE Courses
  • Career Exploration and Assessments
  • Interviewing and Resumes
  • Career Training for graduating Seniors
  • College @ Capo Information
Become familiar with CCA's After School Offerings for 2024-25 (Almost all CCA courses are A-G approved and many are UC Honors Weighted!). Use the link below to request to register.
Current high school students may request to register for a 2024-2025 after school CCA class on Monday, February 12 starting at 8 AM using the registration link. Please note that registration is not guaranteed by filling out the form, and that students may be wait-listed. Internship classes are for students who are 16+ by the Spring semester (January). Additional hours are required for FTC and FRC Robotics Team Competitions. The after school CCA schedule is subject to change. Incoming freshmen should register with their middle school guidance department, and not through the link above. Please note that most after school courses are yearlong and CCA does not provide transportation. After school CCA classes count towards high school credit.
CCA classes at all CUSD high school locations begin the week of August 20, 2024 and at Laguna Beach High School the week of August 26, 2024.
