Vision: CAAAE seeks to provide programs and services to students, families, and teachers in order to create culturally conscious African American students who are life-long learners and critical thinkers. CAAAE works to create a forum for the exchange of ideas and strategies to improve the educational opportunities and achievement for African American students.

Impact: CAAAE engages its constituency through various educational programs, college readiness initiatives, as well as professional development breakfasts. The ‘Green Scholars Program,’ for students interested in STEM has attributed to a 90% 4-year graduation rate for its graduates.
