Welcome to CCA! We know that you are excited about the opportunities CCA offers your family.  One of the great things about CCA is that there are MANY ways to get involved! The best place to start is by joining PAPA, which stands for Performers, Artists, Parents and Advocates. This is an organization where parents, students, and faculty work together for the good of the student and the school. The fee is only $5, and every penny raised goes to help the students right here at CCA!


Mission Statement

PAPA provides funding and manpower needed to help CCA provide a quality education to each student in the areas of both academics and the arts.

Although parent volunteer service is a requirement for a student to attend CCA, PAPA works with the administration to help coordinate and enhance the efforts of parent volunteers in all aspects of the school.


In order to accomplish our mission statement, we will:

  • Promote and reward academic achievement.
  • Assist CCA in providing opportunities for parents to meet required commitments of time and effort.
  • Ensure that CCA property is well maintained, both aesthetically and functionally, within the scope of our responsibilities.
  • Maintain such fiduciary accountability that members are confident that their board is acting in their best interest and collected funds are properly allocated.

This group is the equivalent of the PTA in other schools. PAPA is unique because it is a free-standing registered charitable corporation that exists solely to serve the Center for Creative Arts.

PAPA Organization

PAPA needs YOU! We need your time, your talent, your ideas, and your resources. As you already know, 18 volunteer hours are required for your student to retain their place at CCA. Joining PAPA and becoming involved is the best way to get your hours in and help your students at the same time!
