CCCS Culture

Students having fun during recessCamden Community Charter School prides itself on having created a “Private, Public School” culture in which the building, facilities, and teaching staff resemble those of a private institution.

Located in Camden, NJ, a proud but economically challenged city with crime and poverty rates among the highest in the state, Camden Community Charter School stands out, breathing life back into the city. At CCCS, the challenging climate of the city is contrasted by one of safety and security, as CCCS is secured by video surveillance, intercom systems, secure entrances, and gated grounds.

Camden Community Charter School provides a safe and secure environment for learning and growing. CCCS’s goal is to empower students through active learning and provide them with the confidence and tools to be self-sufficient as they move on to high school, college, and beyond. With a focus on academics and life skills through a partnership with parents and the community, CCCS challenges students to push themselves. The teachers stimulate their students’ curiosity and encourage them to reach far and wide and to believe in themselves. CCCS is a turnaround school in a community that is determined to rebound and revitalize.
