Homewood-Brushton Center

In 1967, CCAC started a GED program in Pittsburgh's Homewood Brushton community. The program was soon expanded to include an Adult Basic Education Center offering college credit.

By 1981, the rapid growth and popularity of the programs demanded construction of the Homewood-Brushton Center, a two story, 32,000 square foot facility housing classrooms, a Learning Resource Center, a reading lab, two fully equipped computer labs, 2 e-learning rooms and one presentation room (high technology rooms) a science resource room and a state of the art science lab for anatomy and physiology, chemistry and microbiology courses.

The HBC is located in the heart of Homewood and is convenient to bus routes and the Martin Luther King East Busway. The site offers

  • Tutoring
  • Academic advising
  • Placement testing
  • Registration
  • Financial Aid assistance
  • Student services

Community Education CCAC is proud of its relationships with Community agencies, particularly the YMCA where we offer HPE, Health and Physical Education classes.
