This is an absolutely fantastic school with an amazing faculty and wonderful, passionate, and caring students; I truly could not imagine myself anywhere else. CCA embraces difference; you know that no matter what you do, you will not get looked at strangely (unless you express discriminatory -- sexist, homophobic, or transphobic in particular -- opinions). Unfortunately, as the school is growing and maturing CCA has become more of an "ordinary" high school, losing some of its former artsy/weird/hippie/unique culture. I have been very disappointed by the increasing academic pressure/competition (AP obsession!) among students, which I think has contributed to a loss of personality and tolerance in the school. Overall, however, CCA is still an incredible place to be!
