I would recommend this school to anyone considering it. My years here were filled with a great education, wonderful extracurriculars, outstanding opportunities, and a close-knit family of students and faculty that has supported me my entire time here. Best decision I ever made coming here!

Excellent private, college prep school named Blue Ribbon School. Known for sports and academics. Academically 2nd only to MPH in Syracuse. Puts lots of kids into elite, top tier colleges. Our son loves CBA and has made many good friends there. There are many opportunities to engage in outside activities. The parents are very involved, but the administration could leverage the parents for more than just fundraising. Overall, the faculty is very good, but sometimes inconsistent. The quality of some teachers was not what we would have liked to have seen from a private school. Many parents use outside tutors to supplement classroom learning. Like many Catholic schools, the administration can be a bit rigid and inflexible. But on the whole, CBA was a great choice for our son and definitely worth the tuition to send him there. He is very devoted to CBA and proud of his school. We are have no doubt that the education he received there will serve him well moving forward with his education.
Christian Brothers Academy helps students exel academically and socially and become successful well-rounded individuals. This school prepares each one greatly and prepares them for their next step in their lives. The faculty and staff show interest in the students lives in and out of school which help develop healthy relationships. Christian Brothers Academy exemplifies a sense of community and family where students push each other to reach their fullest potential and reach their goals. At this school, the students support one another in all that they do from outside activities, sports, exams and hobbies. You will always see many students step out to support their classmates at every sporting or theater event that is held. As a Senior, I am proud to say that I attend Christian Brothers Academy and will forever be grateful for the opportunities and friendships that I have made throughout my years.
