Welcome to Creative Achievement Academy
The Creative Achievement Academy school is a non-profit private institution for students with academic and behavioral challenges. Our therapeutic approach is based on the conviction that all students can learn. Creative Achievement Academy provides a nurturing environment in which students establish a new foundation, an equal chance and a sense of belonging and acceptance. Each student's program is tailored to his/her individual needs using a broad range of teaching strategies and hands on activities.
Workplace Readiness programs, career awareness and pro-social skills are an integral part of our program. The SLE (Structured Learning Environment-supervised work experience) provides our students with skills that are not available at other educational facilities. Our counseling program also provides networking with outside agencies such as DVR (Division of Vocational Rehabilitation) so our students can connect for the transition after graduation. Many of our alumni continue with their jobs after graduation and others move on to post secondary education. Most of our 2013 graduates are enrolled at Cumberland County College for the fall semester.
Our newly renovated state of the art facility is located at 1667 East Landis Avenue in Vineland. The building is large enough to house our elementary and middle school students in their own wing and the high school students in a separate wing. Each wing has it's own computer lab. The building also features an indoor swimming pool, weight room, gymnasium, full kitchen and cafeteria. Any parent or Child Study Team interested in more information about CAA are encouraged to call to set up a tour.
