About Us

The Lynne H. Erdle Canandaigua Academic and Career Center is a place where students grow, thrive, and reach their academic and career potential.

The CACC offers a Regents curriculum where students benefit from an alternative setting, with small class sizes that allow them much interaction with staff and with each other. There is a deliberate and strong emphasis on career development and graduates from the CACC are ready for college and the workforce.

With hands-on learning opportunities and an ever-growing emphasis on interdisciplinary study and projects, the philosophy and daily life of the CACC make it a place where students truly love their academic and personal growth…in their “home away from home!”
