C&A is a program designed to provide students with a different type of learning experience. C&A is based around authentic learning experiences in supportive classroom environments. Students have opportunities to work in cohorts and have teachers for more than one year, which creates a sense of community and continuity in their school experience.

The program has six Performance Results that all students strive to reach in addition to meeting Utah Core requirements:

  1. Self-directed learners
  2. Quality workers and producers
  3. Cooperative group participants and leaders
  4. Contributors to our community
  5. Complex thinkers and problem solvers
  6. Effective communicators

C&A programs are currently offered at:

  • Ensign Elementary School (grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6)
  • Hawthorne Elementary School (grades 1-2, 3-4, 5-6)
  • Clayton Middle School (grades 7-8)
