We welcome your interest in our school and community. The Admission process is designed to discover what inspires each applicant's curiosity and creativity. We are also eager to help each applicant and their family get to know CA.
Please join us for admission events and SPEAK lecture series. Later in the season, when it is safer to do so, we hope to offer in-person tours of our beautiful, 94-acre campus and show you our modern academic, arts, counseling, library, engineering and athletic spaces.
Right now, the Admission Team has designed a Virtual Tour Experience to help you learn more about CA. Tap on the photos below and spend 20 minutes exploring. You will gain great insight into the CA community and culture, and you will also be guided about how to apply.

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.
