CAC supports students nationwide through two innovative program models. The in-school advising model places well-trained, recent graduates from over 30 partner universities as full-time college advisers in high schools across the nation. The hybrid advising model serves students in both in-person and virtual settings. KSCAC uniquely offers the two advising models in support of assisting students to find their best-fit post-secondary pathway.
