  • (2 years ago)

    Very impressed by the CBA experience. Positive encouraging environment; many options available for students; fosters independent thinking; outstanding opportunities for athletics academics and music; impressed with teaching staff. Son loves it here and is doing well. Plenty of opportunities for involvement. Highly recommend looking into CBA as an option--well worth the tuition and we feel our son will secure a scholarship for college that will make our investment worthwhile (we'll pay less in the end).

    I am very satisfied with the curriculum offered at this school to include honors and advanced programs for the young men in attendance. The structure and commitment by the faculty and staff is to be commended! I appreciate the safe environment and as well the many opportunities for extra curriculur activities from sports to debate teams and other opportunities to include many school trips each year. This is a multi faceted school offering great opportunities to young men who are willing to push them selves. Well worth the cost for the benefits.

    So much to do at this school over a hundred different activities over a dozen sports and good class selection. The number one thing about C.B.A. is the principal leadership. They put the kids into line but can also be your best friend!
