  • Houses

    The CPA Administration and Student Government Association introduced the concept of "houses" into the upper school several years ago. The “house” concept is a largely British model of grouping students across grades 9-12 in an effort to build community, improve school spirit, facilitate mentoring by upperclassmen, and establish meaningful traditions. At CPA, it is part of a systematic approach to positively reinforcing the characteristics we want to see cultivated in our students. The houses at CPA are Barclay, MacKinnon, Sutherland, and Wallace.

Finally, the athletics program teaches self-sacrifice, self-discipline, and personal commitment to attain the goal of excellence.
