The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
Most people do not think of athletics when they think of a community college, but CCAC offers a wide variety of intercollegiate and intramural athletics for both men and women. Sports provide opportunities for students to enhance their overall experience at the college by encouraging lifelong wellness, sportsmanship and academics.
CCAC is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The NJCAA serves as the national governing body for two-year collegiate athletics in the United States and is the nation's second-largest national intercollegiate sports organization (second to the NCAA). Each year nearly 60,000 student-athletes from 525 member colleges compete in 28 different sports.
Is recreation more your speed? If you are interested just in having a little fun or staying in shape, the vast selection of campus intramural sports offers a great way to balance your academic life, relieve stress and meet other students. Each campus has a well-equipped fitness center which is free to students with a student ID.
