This was our first year with CCA and my son and I are very pleased with the school. Being gifted and learning disabled, my son was able to move at his own pace and recieved much needed accomodations which our district school would not consider since his weakest areas were in the average range. He was able to start math the next grade up and move as quickly as he wanted. The school truly seemed to know more about gifted AND learning disabled kids, than our local school.
