Winter Activities


A longstanding tradition, CCA’s Winter Activities program takes place on six Fridays in January and February each year. The special activities provide wonderful opportunities during the winter months for students and staff to stay active and build school camaraderie.

On Fridays, the school day begins at 8 AM and ends at 12 PM. (Mission Ridge is the only exception.) Students choose one activity they’d like to be involved in over the six Fridays. CCA provides transportation and staff supervision for most of these activities.

Each year, we adapt our program to fit the community activities that are available. Some of the most popular activities offered include*:

  • Swimming and swim lessons at the YMCA
  • Ice skating and lessons at Town Toyota Center
  • Skiing/Snowboarding and lessons at Mission Ridge
  • Rock climbing and instructions at Riverfront Rock Gym
  • Sports in the CCA Gym
  • Cultural and academic activities at CCA, including crafting, cooking, and baking.

*Certain activities may not be available for every grade. Activity costs vary; consult the Winter Fun Fridays Overview or Enrollment Form for details. For more information, contact Jessenia Brenal.




Yearbook Staff

Joining the yearbook staff gives students the opportunity to interact with classmates and to become an integral part of their CCA legacy. Staff members use their talents and creativity to preserve memories their classmates will cherish for a lifetime.

Grade 8 through 12 students are eligible to join this extracurricular activity. Students will work on pages assigned by the yearbook adviser who aligns each student to the student’s grade and interests.

All staff members are required to attend three after-school work sessions in order to complete their pages and meet yearbook deadlines. 


Washington D.C. Trip

CCA high school students have the chance to go on an amazing trip to Washington D.C. A beloved CCA tradition of over 25 years, the trip gives students the opportunity to visit our nation’s capital and see the numerous monuments and memorials that honor and document the history of our country. CCA’s high school history teacher leads this trip, accompanied by other CCA staff.

We welcome parents and guardians who wish to accompany their students as chaperones and select up to 20 students and 10 accompanying adults for each trip. To be considered, interested students must submit an application.
