We ask that parents attend a scheduled tour of the school.  This is to help the parent determine whether or not CAA is a good fit for your child.  You are welcome to submit an application package at any time before or after you have toured the school.

Scheduled tours have concluded and will resume during the 2022-2023 school year.
