About Cascade Academy of Music & Arts

Our History


Cascade Academy of Music and Arts is a place for families to bring their children for a wonderful experience in music.  The program was founded in 2001 as North County Homeschool Music Program.  From 2001 to today, this diverse program had flourished, growing from a small group of homeschool families, to a respected program serving over 200 students in choir, band, orchestra, and drama classes.  In 2016, Cascade Academy of Music & Arts (CAMA) was created out of NCHMP.  Our unique blend of music classes and development of leadership among the more experienced students as they help the newer students has created an amazing and dynamic learning environment.
