CAC Programs

CAC Early College Program

Central Arizona College (CAC) Early College is a way for high school students to enroll in college courses at the same time they are enrolled in high school. Students participating in Early College may concurrently enroll in CAC classes during the regular fall and spring semester of high school. Students may enroll in Early College at the end of their sophomore or junior year, and may take up to five (5) college credits and receive a tuition waiver for the cost of the courses. Students must pay for their textbooks and provide their own transportation to CAC. The ACUPLACER (placement test) must be taken prior to enrolling in CAC. The ACUPLACER is offered at each of the CGUHSD high schools during both the fall and spring semesters, or students may complete this step as part of the First Step and/or Early College orientation process. These college courses may count for dual credit. To receive dual credit, students must have an official transcript sent to their high school. Students will receive honors weighted GPA credit for dual credit course if they successfully complete an English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, or Foreign Language course(s) that transfers to a four-year university. To apply, students will need to pick up an application in the Counseling Office.

CAC Promise for the Future

Promise for the Future is an educational initiative made possible through a partnership between Central Arizona College (CAC), the Central Arizona College Foundation, and Pinal County Middle and High Schools. Promise for the Future was designed to encourage students who reside in Pinal County to remain in high school and graduate from a Pinal County high school. The Promise for the Future requirements inspire students to reach their full potential by challenging them to graduate with a minimum of a 2.75 grade point average AND participate in 20 hours of community service. Students who successfully meet Promise for the Future requirements will be eligible to earn a tuition-free education at Central Arizona College (CAC).
