California Cadet Corps Program Overview
California Cadet Corps (CACC) has been creating student leaders since 1911. Altus schools host the CACC as part of its Character and Leadership Development (CLD) program. Leadership Cadets at Altus schools help plan and action events for San Diego, Southern California, and the entire state through the distinct levels of structure in CACC. Our CACC cadets learn how to manage time, work with other cadets, and balance their academics in pursuit of their own professional development.
Cadets in CACC in Altus Schools have gone on to be successful at four-year universities, military academies, and private industry. The skills and life lessons learned in CACC benefit our cadets in both their present and future goals. Leadership Cadets start their experience in CLD classes then apply to be part of the CACC team.
CACC Leadership Cadets at Altus Schools enjoy:
- A-G approved elective credit
- Skills for scholarships and college applications
- Professional networking
- Event planning and action
Leadership Cadets represent the principles of Altus schools across the state of California as they network with over 7,000 cadets and adult leaders. Talk to your teacher about the credited leadership opportunities offered at Altus schools.
