Welcome to the Casa Grande College & Career Center!
History: Casa Grande was selected as one of the pilot schools for the Northern California Career Pathway Alliance Grant. This alliance is made up of Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Solano, Mendocino and Lake Counties and was awarded a Career Pathway Trust Grant from the California Department of Education. This grant allows the Alliance to provide additional support to schools in the form of work-based learning and create a system that aligns the K-12, Community College and Workforce Investment Boards. The goal is to feed more students into the pipeline of high need, high wage, high skills jobs in the North Bay region.
