CBA is a learning community like no other. The moment a student first walks through our doors they become part of history – a tradition of scholarship, service, faith and brotherhood that dates back to our founding more than 160 years ago.

Serving students in grades 5 through 8, CBA Middle School offers a challenging contemporary curriculum, a wide range of exploratory opportunities, and personalized instruction that builds upon each student’s God-given talents to expand their horizons and prepare them to enter high school ready to meet the challenges ahead.

CBA offers many unique academic and extra-curricular opportunities, and, with a focus on character education, couples those extras with high expectations for respect and personal responsibility.
