Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

CPA students, families, and staff, welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! To those of you new to our school community, we are excited to build relationships with you and get to know you in the days and weeks ahead. To those of you who are returning to us, we look forward to the leadership you will provide this year at CPA.

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time. The whole year is ahead of us, and it seems that anything is possible. We can only imagine the friends we will make, the experiences we will share, the ideas we will explore, and the ways we will grow as individuals and as a community.

Whatever the year has in store for us, please know that we are here to help you have the best possible school year. And that all starts with a great Week 1--so let's get started!
