Midland County Career and College Access Network (CCAN)

What is Midland County CCAN?

Midland County needs a strong workforce equipped to compete in a 21st century global economy.  In order to build and sustain a vibrant economy and strong community based on a highly educated population, Midland County Career and College Access Network works to ensure everyone in Midland County has the opportunity to access and succeed in postsecondary education.

  • Increase success of traditional and nontraditional students through lowering barriers

Goals

All Midland County students will:

  • Be academically, socially and financially prepared for postsecondary study by the end of high school
  • Enroll in college/postsecondary education within six months of high school graduation or GED completion
