Welcome to Creative Achievement Academy
The Creative Achievement Academy school is a 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 CNA (Certified Nurse Aide Program) and SLE (Structured Learning Environment-supervised work experience) provide 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.
Creative Achievement has some exciting changes for the 2012-13 school year. The Wood Street and West Campus schools have combined and moved to our new home at the freshly rennovated Nash Education Building 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 seeing the building are encouraged to call to set up a tour.
Students performed for parents & classmates at the annual CAA Talent show on 5/3/13.
Creative Achievement Academy's weight room has a variety of free weights and exercise equipment. Our goal is to improve the health of our students through proper diet and exercise as well as provide positive reinforcement and direction. Students will learn a variety of lifts and exercises that can be integrated into their own personal workout. We also emphasize safety and weight room etiquette. CAA has a certified Personal Trainer on staff.
The weight room includes: Free weights, benches, exercise balls, bands, medicine balls, punching bags, agility ladder and hurdles, tires, sandbags and more.
The Creative Achievement Swimming Program is designed to introduce and teach our students the fundamentals of swimming. Our students will not only learn how to swim, they will also learn personal safety in and around the water. Participating students will receive instruction in our indoor pool along with a swim instructor and certified lifeguard. The program teaches valuable life saving skills and helps students gain confidence as they achieve new challenges.
