Mission

Cornelia Connelly Center (CCC) champions girls at risk, empowering them to realize their full potential from middle school through college and beyond. Students enter our joyful and holistic program in the 4th or 5th grade at Connelly Middle School (CMS), continue on as CMS graduates in the Graduate Support Program (GSP), and matriculate to and graduate from college in GSP 2.0, receiving financial, academic and social-emotional support from 4th grade through college graduation. 
 
In the twenty-six years since founding, the Connelly Center has empowered over 450 girls through our thirteen-year program.
