About the CAA

The Creative Arts Academy at Community School provides students the opportunity to pursue in-depth their passion for the arts.

The curriculum of the Creative Arts Academy (CAA) provides pre-professional training in the arts and a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, which will result in students receiving a rich and diverse education in both the arts and academics.

Students will find their arts education enhanced by teachers who are working professionals in their respective fields. The core requirements for the Creative Arts Academy are focused on the disciplines of drama, visual arts, and music. Students may join as either freshmen or sophomores via an open admissions procedure, however, students must declare a focus in their applications and must meet certain benchmarks at the end of each year in order to continue.

Students transferring to Community School as juniors or seniors may apply as long as they have met some minimum requirements in order to complete the program successfully. All students will be required to have a final performance or exhibit as a culminating event by the end of the senior year in order to complete the Creative Arts Academy program.
