The teachers are great and care a lot for their students, the grounds are beautiful, and the school is tough enough to prepare students for college while not altogether placing the value of students in their grades. However, the school is not a very diverse learning environment, whether it be race, economic status, or way of life. This issue is presently being dealt with and evidence of that can be found in the lower grades of the school, but can't really be found in the higher grades.

I loved CPA, but I did not like the lack of diversity I experienced there. There was no diversity of thought, religion (obviously), race, or socioeconomic status. They focus too much on sports and the sciences while neglecting foreign languages and the humanities. However, I made lifelong friends, and some of the teachers were the most amazing people I have ever met.
You have your hit or miss teachers like at every school s. The Athletic Program is the best run thing here it's first class coaches you really love their players and want to make them into great people. Many loyal CPA families have sent their kids away due to controversial decision making. The one HUGE knock on CPA is that the diversity (especially in the high school) is very bad. The school is about 95% white kids with most of the african american kids being adopted. Student life at CPA is ok the main bright point is the house system the student get behind their house and it's a fun experience. If you are a parent touring the school take a couple min to ask a student walking down the hall about the school (not the ones they have talk to you) it would give you a better idea of what a normal CPA student is like. CPA is going to get bigger in a couple years, they are completely revamping the campus and I hope they don't stray away from the "old CPA"
