CAB is perhaps the only school I have known where students work in harmony and collaboration instead of getting into cut throat! As a parent it is most important to me that my children experience and learn life to be a journey and not a competition and have the ability to contemplate the impermanence and interdependence of life, for the betterment of humankind. My hats off and a huge thanks to Cab’s Faculty! You’re Awesome!

The school is simply extraordinary! The integration of both arts and academics truly makes for an enriched and rigorous education/curriculum. In addition, the school administration, staff, and students are all extremely accepting and are constantly looking to improve upon themselves. I could not ask for a better experience!
As a senior at Cab, I've been here for almost 7 years, all of which were amazing. I've met friends for life, and learned from super supportive teachers, all under one really accepting roof. I've been asked countless times about the school by prospective parents or students, and every single time I say they should apply. I blossomed at Cab, and it's a family I know I'll have forever. If you don't know if you should apply, just try!
