The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
In 1967, CCAC started a GED program in Pittsburgh's Homewood
Brushton community. The program was soon expanded to include
an Adult Basic Education Center offering college credit.
By 1981, the rapid growth and popularity of the programs
demanded construction of the Homewood-Brushton Center, a two story,
32,000 square foot facility housing classrooms, a Learning Resource
Center, a reading lab, two fully equipped computer labs, 2
e-learning rooms and one presentation room (high technology rooms)
a science resource room and a state of the art science lab for
anatomy and physiology, chemistry and microbiology courses.
The HBC is located in the heart of Homewood and is convenient to
bus routes and the Martin Luther King East Busway. The site offers

Community agencies, particularly the YMCA where we offer HPE,
Health and Physical Education classes.
