As a student, you will be taught by talented professionals, committed to the ideals of Lasallian education. Our teachers model the practices of St. John Baptist de La Salle by showing the presence of Jesus in themselves and seeking it out in each individual student. Much will be expected of you, but as our graduates have proven for over 50 years, the benefits of an Academy education are well worth the effort.
Students at CBA work very hard at their studies. As freshman are told at orientation, three to four hours of homework a night is the normal workload. When students’ academic achievement is so highly prioritized, the temptation to make poor decisions can rise. Engaging in acts of academic dishonesty is never the appropriate response to the challenges of CBA’s academic rigors, but neither is elevating the importance of grades on a report card over the greater value of what students learn. The most important lessons that graduates take with them are never the specific details of a multiple-choice test or short answer response. The time spent at CBA is a valuable period of growth and self-discovery. It is the school’s expectation that by making honorable decisions with regard to their academic studies, our students will learn to make similarly sound choices in all aspects of their lives.
