  • Acceptances and Advanced Scholars: Isaiah, Harrison and Mattias

Isaiah Reed, a talented writer interested in pursing a literary career has been accepted to Averett University! Isaiah is interested in pursing a degree in screenwriting/creative writing.

Mr. Lofton, CBA Upper School English teacher, published author and poet, and Isaiah’s uncle notes: “Isaiah is a very talented writer. He really does know how to string effective sentences together, especially when developing a story. I have been watching him grow for the last couple of years. Averett University accepted him, but he is keeping his options open. He has expressed to me that he wants to write screenplays, and I think all he needs is the right program and guidance. Whatever he decides to do, I am sure he will make the best decision for himself.”

Harrison Pittman is no stranger to finding success, so his early acceptance into Christopher Newport University came with little surprise to his CBA family.

After joining the CBA community in the third grade, Harrison spent the next several years developing his skill set as a twice-exceptional (2E) learner while he enjoyed time on the soccer team, playing in the school band, tinkering in our MakerSpace, and growing to over 6 ft. tall! Harrison is currently in his second semester at Virginia Wesleyan University through the Advanced Scholar’s dual-enrollment program, which allows our upper schoolers to earn college credit while working toward high school graduation. This fall, Harrison will enter a new chapter in his life as he begins his studies at CNU in their computer science program.

Congratulations to upper schooler Mattias Marchetti on his first semester in our Advanced Scholars program!

As part of CBA’s ongoing partnership with Virginia Wesleyan University, the Advanced Scholars program allows students to be dually-enrolled and earn college credit while still in high school. Mattias is taking Introduction to Business and hopes to one day attend George Mason University and major in Business.

Congratulations, gentlemen. CBA is very proud of all of you!
