Words of Wisdom from CPA
Fall is officially upon us. Throughout our neighborhood, trees are beginning to change color and drop their leaves. This season is a beautiful time of change and growth.
Inside the walls of CPA, there are many other changes taking place. Students and teachers are finding their rhythm after a highly disrupted break from traditional education. After 6 weeks of school, we are getting in the flow. We are seeing amazing transformations in our students, and things are starting to feel normal again.
Change is beautiful and change is good. Thanks for growing with CPA!
