Its foundation is a strong academic curriculum but is balanced by an extensive and challenging program in athletics, the arts and community service.

Learning at CA is not confined to the classroom. Learning opportunities abound. The school’s experiential Interim program, student-generated club activities, and a broad-based community service program are among the hallmarks of every student’s Middle School experience.
