Eliza Moore is a 2020 YoungArts Award winner in the category of short story.

“It was about a young girl and her family, and her brother had just passed away. YoungArts is a national program where all sorts of different high schoolers apply in all sorts of disciplines. The winners have the opportunity to go to a week long conference in Miami. And it’s all expenses paid.”

Suezanna Russell is a senior at the school.

She got accepted into an international performance series at Carnegie Hall.

“I originally started in the third grade. I have become a lot more confident than I used to be when I first came to CCA. But being surrounded by so many other confident people here, and supportive teachers taught me to grow to be a more confident person.”

School leaders say CCA has a proven track record of turning out students who can be successful in the arts.
