City College Academy of the Arts (CCAA) is a 6th-12th grade, early college school. With the City College of New York (CCNY) and the Early College Initiative as its primary partners, CCAA has designed a learning community that is safe, supportive, rigorous, and challenging.

CCAA students graduate with up to 60 college credits from CCNY. The arts are the conduit through which students develop the skills needed to become problem solvers, critical thinkers, and analytical learners. CCAA is committed to ensuring that its students succeed as college students and as valued members of their families and communities.
