Brothers Remove Barriers


For over 120 years, CBA has met the needs and interests of our students – helping them to achieve greatness in all aspects of their lives. Admission to CBA during the COVID-19 pandemic follows this great tradition by removing barriers to get to know CBA through a variety of in-person and virtual experiences. We do not want anyone’s life’s circumstances to be an obstacle in pursuing a CBA education.

Here are several ways to help you discover if our CBA mission and Lasallian teaching practices are the best fit for YOU as a student, or for your child.
