In September 2014, Central Commerce Collegiate Institute was renamed Central Toronto Academy because of the change in the school's ethos, from a school focusing on business and commerce to one whose focus is on arts, academics, and athletics. The school also offers Advanced Placement courses.


Being a teenager is not easy. There are so many changes happening on so many levels. Physically, mentally, emotionally. Your brain is changing, your hormones are running wild, then add onto that friendship, relationships, social and academic pressures, and of course – social media. in this situation, it is necessary to have a friendly school which helps you grow on many sides. Making the decision to improve your skills takes you a step closer to feeling more confident. Once you have achieved a certain goal, gained another skill, or developed a certain area of your life, you naturally feel good about yourself. The more you keep on developing in the areas of your life you are not confident in, the more you can boost your confidence. Everybody got its own talent inside. Every individual has its own idea and talent. But most of us can not explore it because of lacking personal development. Without growth, life is like a dull existence. Due to lie situations, many people can not develop personally. Growth is an essential part of the life of a person. Personal development helps us to learn which we are capable to learn. Personal development is very important. It helps to find out the opportunity to create a better life mentally, physically and spiritually. Personal development is very important.
