What the Student-Athletes are Saying

“CBA has prepared me on and off the field to be a better person, teammate, and player. I’m grateful for the opportunities the Academy has provided me and the lifelong lessons and memories I will carry with me into the next chapter of my life.” – Harrison Campi (Wofford College, Baseball)

“During my four years at the Academy, CBA has challenged and demanded the most out of me. I have been forced to make difficult decisions and develop new habits that would help me excel in and out of the classroom. The uniqueness of my CBA experience has allowed me to grow into a young man and accomplish tasks through resilience, hard work, and determination.” – Andrew Vieth (Rollins College, Crew)

“CBA has overprepared me athletically and academically for college by teaching me the value of discipline, hard work, and being part of a team. Whether in the classroom or out on the field, I am surrounded by my brothers, teachers, and coaches who have my back and push me to reach my fullest potential. At Bucknell University in the fall, I have no doubt that I will be able to flourish academically and athletically. The dedication and sacrifices I have made for CBA’s rigorous programs have shaped me into an excellent student-athlete.” – Lucas Ward (Bucknell University, Cross Country)

“CBA has a special way of preparing its students for college and their life beyond school. We are given opportunities, challenges, and choices every day. The decisions we make in each of these situations shape us and help us see our potential. I’m grateful to CBA’s administration, teachers, coaches, and staff for their commitment to me and my fellow brothers in the Academy. – James Penczak (Fairfield University, Crew)

“Over my four years at CBA, the teachers, coaches, administrators, and guidance counselors have pushed me to become the best version of myself. CBA has taught me essential skills that I will use in the future. Academically, CBA taught me to how to focus and prepare, while athletically, CBA has taught me to aim high and work hard to achieve my goals.” – Kiernan Leary (Loyola University Maryland, Swimming)
