The CCC provides the following services:

The CCC Counselors all have their Masters in School Counseling, with a P.P.S Credential. Collectively, they have over 15 years of School and College Counseling experience. They regularly attend college admissions training, college information sessions, and financial aid training. In addition, they travel to universities across the world to gain insight into various college campuses, and build relationships between the CCC and College Admissions Representatives.
