"Serving Those Who Serve Others"

The mission of the Central California Training Academy (CCTA) is to enhance the ability of staff in public social services and child welfare agencies to protect children and to prevent placement whenever possible.

Through the Academy, child welfare workers will have greater access to current and state-of-the-art child welfare practices, thereby leading to more competent workers in the field.
