I chose to teach at CPA because I strongly believe in character education, teaching peace, and the importance of community. -Shaun, CPA teacher
CPA is like one big family. My children LOVE it here at CPA. My high schooler has known her best friends since they were all kindergarteners. They grew up together and have created such a wonderfully close and honest relationship that they plan to attend college together as well. Additionally, the teachers and staff members are great and they always take that extra step to help my children grow as individuals. -Mee, CPA parent
The ethics and principles CPA teaches are what the world needs more of. -Andy, CPA graduate
I like CPA because my teachers all know me really well and know how I learn best. -Noemi, CPA student
