The teachers here are absolutely amazing, they are always looking out for their student's future career and educational pathways, they are often very understanding of student schedule and are willing to do what they can to help. The school also puts on several free events to help us relieve tension, which absolutely comes in handy during midterms and finals. The only thing I would change about this school, is for there to be more restaurants or businesses close to the school for students living in the dorms to visit, instead there is just desert, which makes it feel a little isolated, but other than that the community and the workers here are absolutely amazing.

When participating in the early college program throughout my junior and senior year of high school, I grew fond the environment and how the culinary chef instructor was at the San tan campus. Chef Clay Peden ensured the safety of his students, gave us work place that was open to help when need and provided real world situations that would help better us as culinarians. The campus even provided a interactive lecture about what to do during a school shooting situation. It was very informative and made me feel even more safe.
I love cac! The academic advisers make sure you are utilizing all of the resources that I have been provided to you. They make sure that you stay on your plan making sure that your grades stay up to par and that you are not struggling in any aspect. They sit down with you and they take the time to make a plan to get to your degree. They show that they truly care about you getting your degree just as much as you care. I truly like CAC and can’t wait to get my degree through them
