Diversity: There are so many people from all over the world with different religions, beliefs, cultures and personal backgrounds. There are no two alike people at this school. Everyone is very unique and different in their own way and everyone is very accepting for other's life choices.

Diversity: CCA has a wide range of students coming from a whole variety of backgrounds.

If you have an open mind and a strong creative drive CCA is a good choice.
