Counseling Center

Jamie Custer, Guidance Counselor |

CAC’s Counseling Center is continually striving to prepare students for collegiate and career success. CAC students have a history of receiving academic scholarships from many distinguished universities, and we strive to continue that tradition by working with each student and providing them with the resources they need to succeed. The 2020-21 school year might look different as we adjust to the changing landscape of education in a pandemic, but our work with students will continue no matter what their classroom may look like.
