About Partnerships

As part of the community in Allegheny County, CCAC has formed many partnerships with business to help enhance the education of community members. These partnerships allow students to come to CCAC to enhance their lives, better their education and provide them with tools to be successful.


Healthcare Careers Academy

The Community College of Allegheny County is partnering with the Jefferson Regional Foundation to empower students to increase their own economic mobility, and on a larger scale, improve the economic health of our region. The CCAC Healthcare Careers Academy is a two-week summer experience that is designed to expose 10th–12th grade students from the South Hills and Mon Valley areas to family-sustaining career options in health care, allowing them to discover that today's health care careers extend well beyond careers as physicians and nurses.

Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP)

The Community College of Allegheny County has been selected for the second year to participate in the national Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) sponsored by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education and the Arthur C. Clark Institute for Space Education, in the U.S. and the Arthur C. Clark Institute for Space Education, internationally . SSEP gives CCAC students the opportunity to gain real world experience in how scientific research is done. The experience begins with the conceptualization and design of an experiment centered around trying to understand how microgravity would affect a biological, chemical, or physical system of interest, to doing background research and writing proposals to gain access to resources, implementing experimental design, analyzing and drawing conclusion, and presenting that data to their peers. SSEP is truly an out of this world experience. ​
