As the culmination of a student’s years at CCA, the Upper School is where it all comes together. Students experience these important years working with classmates who they come to know like family. One of the most powerful components of a CCA education is positive peer pressure. Every student knows that the person to their right or left is there for the same reason: to work hard in getting the best education possible. The Upper School is a genuine community of learners.
Students are encouraged to take risks, to push the envelope, and see what they can accomplish - all within a safe, supportive framework. Our students understand that setbacks are a necessary component of genuine progress and our teachers help them turn problems into opportunities.
The curriculum is designed to allow students to pursue their interests while laying a solid foundation in the core disciplines. Our education has a purpose far beyond the mere acquisition of subject matter. It empowers young learners to become the best version of themselves.
