I wanted to enroll in CAA because I love acting and being on the stage. It's important to have this option at Community School because so many people have many talents in the arts, and it's great that we can focus on that at school and outside the classroom.
I think the benefits of the CAA are that kids have a more defined place to specialize and practice their craft and that it makes the goal of pursuing the arts in college more attainable. I’ve appreciated the willingness of the teachers within the CAA to offer advice. They’ve answered so many of the questions that I have about education and a career in the arts; their dedication to the students and their support have been unparalleled and have made my next steps more apparent.
