College Campus Campaign
CAA is seeking a new home on a Bay Area Campus.
Operating as an independent charter school on a campus of higher education would provide stability allowing us to continue to grow and scale, and significant benefits to the host campus students as well.
- We are seeking approx. 4,000 sq.ft. for a learning space
- We will enroll our own students, pay our own staff and insurance, and maintain strict behavioral standards on campus for students, parents, and care providers.
- This would provide a living learning lab on the host campus, with benefits for studies in psychology, education, neurology, motivational theory, autism research, and geriatrics.
- CAA on your campus would create an opportunity for typical students to interact with students with disabilities, providing lifelong benefits for all.
- Our model has proven its strength and is growing steadily. Operating independently since 2009, we have grown from 12 students to 90, and have a proven track record as mindful, responsible, and astute community partners.
CAA in a nutshell:
CAA provides an equitable collegiate experience to adults with special needs, who historically have not had access to college education. This is a lifelong collegiate model of education, empowering adults with special needs to become successful contributing citizens.
9 Schools of instruction
Using a copyrighted curriculum, CAA offers 35+ courses a week in 9 Schools of Instruction: Art, Communications, Dance, Health & Wellness, Library Arts, Music, Science & Technology, Theatre, TV & Film. Our 9 touring troupes perform throughout the community, at businesses, schools, and events.
Employment & leadership
CAA strives to hire persons with non-traditional workplace and complex backgrounds, such as foster youth, community college students, and adults with differing abilities. Approximately half of our staff have disabilities.
