By Avery Naughton Over the past four years, I’ve taken my fair share of AP classes here at CCA. These classes have ranged from inspiring to dull to dreadfully difficult to manageable. However, a commonality that nearly everyone one of those classes share is that they are specifically taught to follow the guidelines of the […]

By Josh Dillen As the fifth of May draws closer, one thing pervades the minds of CCA students like no other. AP exams are approaching fast and try as we might, testing cannot be delayed. While almost all of the students on campus are aware of AP classes and their impending exams, they seem to […]
By Amanda Presar Is it ethical for private universities to force students to take religious courses? Some colleges, even some high schools here in San Diego, require students to take religious courses. For example, at our neighboring school Cathedral Catholic, students have to take one catholic religion course each year. Not only does this take […]
