At CA, we delight in a student’s curiosity, creativity, and sense of adventure. CA students of all ages develop courage by exploring the abundant opportunities for personal growth in our community. Students also learn from each other and work hard to be kind and stand up for others. That's why our Admission Committee strives to create a mix of talents, backgrounds, and perspectives in each grade that enhances everyone's learning.
