School Reviews

  • Recommended February 09, 2014 - CCA fully prepared me to succeed at an extremely challenging college. I always felt like I had teachers that truly cared about me, and were invested in my life. CCA does not have the greatest resources of any school in WNY, but what they do they do well. Solid academics, sports, and spiritual guidance, and the ability to grow close with your classmates because of the school''s size. Senior trip to the Dominican Republic is also an incredible opportunity. CCA certainly isn''t perfect - nothing is - but I am grateful for the years I spent there. They served me very well. - Posted by Student/Alumni
