Curriculum

The academic program at CCA will be focused on preparing students for the NC Career and College Promise program (as upperclassmen) along with potential pre-apprenticeships and internships. Each student’s schedule will be based on that preparation and the transcript they bring to CCA.

Current Clubs and Organizations

Student Government

DECA, an organization of marketing students

FCA

Drama Club

Chess/Gaming Club

Athletics

CCA Athletics will partner with area organizations to host athletic events (practices, games, and matches) until the school can have its own facilities. Coordinators will make every effort to meet the athletic interests of the student body.

Dress Code

Students are expected to be dressed in an appropriate, non-distracting way. CCA does not have uniforms. (See additional details in the Parent/Student Handbook.)
