Please enjoy our newest College of Adaptive Arts 10 Year Anniversary White Board Animation video about its growth over the past 10 years and the vision to take this collegiate model nationwide for adults hungry to continue to learn and flourish.

Weekly Tours happen each Friday from 1-2 when school is in session. Please plan to schedule a Weekly Tour of the College each Friday school is in session to learn more about this lifelong, equitable collegiate model for special needs adults.

CAA Donors ROCK

CAA students regularly introduce themselves to all guests and prospective families who attend the Weekly Tours each Friday at 1 pm when classes are in session. One student boldly walked up to the group, announced her name, and said, “I like to learn here.”

#CollegeofAdaptiveArts Mission Moment: 

CAA Golf Team Golfer Ryan challenged golfers throughout the day at the CAA Golf Classic to out-distance his drive. Very few community golfers were able to oblige. It feels so good and right to Transform Perception on the golf course whereby you wouldn’t typically think of bumping into an adult with a differing ability.
