Multi-Sensory & Multi-Age Classrooms
People remember... 10% of what they read,

90% of what they do.
The staff at CCA has been trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching language arts (spelling, reading, and grammar). They have also been trained to use a variety of manipulatives for math instruction. They strive to make all lessons in every subject area reach as many senses as possible. This allows all students to succeed regardless of their learning style.
Why Multi-Age Classrooms?
In the beginning years of CCA, combined classrooms were used as a necessity. Those involved soon began to see the benefits of such grouping. Students are more likely to be taught according to their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses when such grouping is used. It allows students the opportunity to be introduced to a greater amount of material that can be covered more in depth. One of the greatest benefits is the opportunity for teachers to really get to know their students strengths, weaknesses, and personalities.
