CAA Donors Rock:

CAA Salutes community leader #CSR Realty for being a steadfast leader and supporter of families with special needs.  CAA received a grant last year from their CSR Cares Foundation.  We are so deeply grateful to the growing community of local community leader donors – every little bit helps to grow this equitable educational model. #CAADonorsRock  #WeAreDifferentWeAreAble #SuccessfulContributingCitizens #BestCollegeEver

Mission Moment: 

One of our prima ballerinas knows the choreography for each dance number taught to her over the past 7 years. She is an exquisite and riveting dancer; her father confided recently that before she came to College of Adaptive Arts, they didn’t know she could dance. #CollegeofAdaptiveArts
