Board Member Testimonials


Tony Domico - President

This is my third year serving on the CTA Board of Directors.

I believe we have an obligation to serve others by using our talents and abilities, and that such service is deeply rewarding. I’m honored to help CTA in its mission to develop students in character, academics and leadership as they seek to achieve their full potential,.

It’s also a privilege to work alongside a team of caring and highly dedicated educators.


Shanielle Rypma - Vice President

Board Member since Oct. 2021

I chose to serve on the board because I care about the kids, my community, and CTA, and I want to make sure that all are well represented on the board. I appreciate the family atmosphere that CTA has built and that everyone from the superintendent down to the parents and kids are on the same team working towards the same goal of developing world changers. 


Terry Treman - Secretary

I consider the time I have spent serving on CTA's Board of Directors a privilege as well as an opportunity to serve my community. I have enjoyed the chance to share what I have learned through my experiences as an educator. CTA provides a valuable, educational alternative to its students, families, and community. I have found the students at CTA to be genuine and dedicated, their families to be engaged and generous, and their teachers and staff to be committed and welcoming. It has been an honor to serve them as a board member.


Mike Tawney - Treasurer

Starting my 4th term.

I chose to serve on the board to help our community have a strong educational system. One of my goals for the school is to continue to strive for excellence in all that we do.


Jim Comden - Trustee

Board Member since Oct. 2021

Reasons I chose to serve as a CTA board member:

1. I have three great grandkids who attend CTA, and I believe they are receiving a well-rounded education - I want to give back.

2. I appreciate who CTA is and our vision and mission, and I want to contribute to our continued success. 

3. I may have a slightly different point of view on some topics we discuss as a board because of my background in the business world and as a great-grandpa.

What I appreciate most:

1. The caring attitude of the staff and teachers; they truly want our students to succeed.

2. The administration and the way they handle complaints/parental concerns.

3. Listening to teachers, staff, board, parents, students, and community leaders when thinking about the future of CTA.
