Our Impact

The Commonwealth Colligate Academy provides a high-quality early college program to schools in underdeveloped communities in Massachusetts. These areas typically have lower college enrollment rates due to socioeconomic factors. CCA seeks to break barriers for students by giving them insights into the academic rigor of college at no cost and motivates students to attend college.

"Within the next 5 years we plan to expand our early college initiative to serve more than 2000 high school students."
