Upper School

Upper School Traditions

Our Upper School has rich traditions - some of which date back to the school's first year educating students. 

List of 6 items.

  • College Acceptance Announcements

    We graduate 100% of our seniors, and it's tradition to celebrate their college acceptances. During Morning Meeting (which happens once each rotation), students announce their peers' college acceptances. While students might not commit until later in the spring, each acceptance a student receives is celebrated in our community. 
  • Semi-Formal

    The Semi-Formal is an annual social event for our Upper School students. Held on campus, the students get to gather, socialize, and enjoy time together in Davis Commons, which is beautifully decorated for their event.
  • Senior Corner

    A designated area in our school is dedicated to our seniors. Comfortable couches, bean bag chairs, bookcases, and tables are arranged for their use. Senior Corner is a place for our seniors to study, relax, and socialize before and after school, as well as between classes.
  • Senior Prom

    Our Upper School student council plans a spring prom each year. With input from their peers, they develop a theme and begin to fundraise at the start of the year. The prom is chaperoned by faculty and staff and held at an off site location. The last few years, prom has been held at the Club at New Seabury and Willowbend.
  • Spirit Week

    Spirit Week is planned by our Upper School student council. The week-long festivities offer the chance for our students to have a little fun and be creative, as well as providing a bonding opportunity for our upperclassmen. The week might include fun activities during and after school, as well as fun dress days.
  • Team Blue/Team White

    At the start of each school year, CCA students are randomly assigned to Team White or Team Blue - across all school divisions. The goal is that each team will be comprised of students in K-12, actively working as a 'team' throughout the year, earning points through various activites. This all culminates in Field Day where Lower, Middle and Upper School students participate in their division-level activities to determine whether Team Blue or Team White will prevail!
