OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
 

Every Friday, students participate in clubs, which operate between 2:15 p.m. and 3:40 p.m. Clubs provide an opportunity for students to pursue an area of interest or learn more about a particular subject or skill.

New clubs are formed every quarter, based upon demand. Students and parents are provided with club selection forms prior to the start of the quarter so that they can discuss what club would be best.

Recent club offerings included:

  • Art
  • Badminton
  • Board Games
  • Coding Club
  • Cooking
  • Digital Media/Film Production 
  • Dungeons and Dragons 
  • Film-Making 
  • Lego Robotics
  • Literature Appreciation
  • Model United Nations
  • Music Appreciation 
  • Outdoor Sports
  • Robotics
  • Service/Volunteering 
  • Theater
  • Writing
  • Yearbook
  • Yoga

Within the framework of a small school, C/A offers numerous opportunities for involvement in both coed and single-sex sports. Students enjoy competitive and non-competitive sports, learning good sportsmanship, teamwork, endurance, and self-discipline.

C/A is part of the Independent Small Schools Athletic Conference (ISSAC). More than one-third of our students participate in competitive sports which, with the exception of basketball and volleyball, are coed teams comprised of both Middle and High School students.

  • Volleyball (Girls, combined MS/HS, Fall sport)
  • Soccer (coed, combined MS/HS, Fall sport)
  • Cross Country (coed, combined MS/HS, Fall sport)
  • Basketball (Boys High School; Boys Middle School; Girls, combined MS/HS; Winter sport)

Teams typically practice during Clubs (where students can also enjoy non-competitive sports such as rock climbing and bowling), but coaches may occasionally call extra practices during the week. Games are scheduled after school or on weekends. 

Our After-School Academic Support (ASAS) program is an optional, fee-based program designed to help Middle School and High School students build a strong foundation of habits to set them up for long-term, autonomous success.

Specifically, ASAS provides students with executive functioning and curriculum support strategies to help empower them to reach academic achievement reflective of their true potential.

The ASAS program is available to assist Middle School students, Monday through Thursday, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The ultimate goal is to prepare our students for the challenges of life beyond C/A. Parents may sign their child up for ASAS at the start of each quarter. The ASAS faculty provides a daily check-in with each student, as well as an in-depth progress check-in at the beginning of each month. The faculty also provides a monthly report for parents that discusses how your child is doing in ASAS.
