ST@CC is a partnership between Carroll County Public Schools, Carroll Community College and The Arc Carroll County. The program was developed for students who demonstrate higher levels of independence and are able to participate in on-campus jobs on a rotational basis. Job rotations give students exposure to a variety of work settings allowing them to sharpen skills, as well as identify areas of possible career interests. Classroom instruction focuses on academic skills for the workplace, financial literacy, self-determination, career development, and communication and social skills.
