The school has very limited academic support services. As with any applicant, those with special needs may be assessed to determine the appropriateness of admission based on their ability to succeed in the standard curriculum in a normal classroom setting, as required by school policy.
CAC seeks to offer an educational program which provides every student with the opportunity to succeed. Some students require additional support to meet grade level expectations, which might include the following: accommodations to the environment, equipment, or format; learning support services; ELL services; speech and language therapy; occupational therapy; counseling; etc.
CAC can accommodate and provide support to students whose needs can be described as Level 1 or Level 2 (see Addendum for precise descriptions of each level).
The number of students that CAC can serve through its Student Support Services program and ELL program combined is limited to 20% of any grade level.
Students with emotional/ behavioral problems that require consistent attention cannot be served. At present, the lay-out of the campus prevents accommodation of some students requiring physical assistance.
- Students with significant emotional/behavioral problems will not be admitted.
- Non-native speakers of English who are not fluent in the language may be admitted if space is available in the ELL (English Language Learner) program. In the secondary school, admission to the ELL program also depends upon the applicant's achieving a sufficient score on the English language placement examination. The ELL program must be successfully completed by the end of Grade 10.
