Jennifer’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy
I love that it is PK-12 because all the kids interact through divisions and we are able to see them grow from young children to young adults as a teacher and parent. The CA family and community provide a wonderful support system.”

Favorite sports teams
“I have attended countless lacrosse and soccer games over the years watching my two older boys play. I am now enjoying watching Andrew participate in swimming and tennis. All three boys are and have been very active in the sports programs and arts programs.”
