With the assistance of Faculty, Student Ambassadors and Staff; students are guided around the college campus to learn more about the programs offered by Central Carolina Community College.

  • CCW Instructional Day

    Student Onboarding and Outreach (SOO) host an annual high school instructional day. The CCW Instructional Day is focused on those high school seniors (Chatham, Harnett, and Lee County schools) who have not completed a college application (to any school) and/or have not selected a career pathway in their final semester. They will be invited to visit the Lee Main campus to learn more about the programs and resources offered by CCCC. Information sessions conducted by instructor, and/or current students will provide a brief overview of a curriculum, program highlights, see hands-on demonstrations and information on industries and career opportunities. (Lunch is provided).
