CFAC’s signature youth arts education program is the Creative Arts Academy (CAA). CAA is a Saturday youth arts enrichment program for elementary and middle school students interested in visual and expressive arts.

The mission of Creative Arts Academy (CAA) is to engage, nurture, and empower young people from the city of Syracuse through the arts. CAA is an arts education and training program comprised of three disciplines: dance, theater, and visual arts. CAA is a tuition-free program for students in grades 3-7 who are accepted after an audition and interview process. CAA believes the arts provide a sound foundation for young people, resulting in an improved sense of self, fortifying them to perform better in school and unearthing their infinite potential.
