The Chicago Academy for the Arts Reviews
Being in the city was also a transformative experience for him (and for us). Living in the suburbs I always felt somewhat disconnected from Chicago, but his time at CAA gave us a real link to the city and a deeper appreciation of it.
To be honest, as his parents, we feel a real sense of nostalgia for his time at CAA. We loved going to events, talking to his teachers, and the staff. We miss it!
