Our Mission

CASA Academy provides low income students with the early academic foundation and character skills necessary to graduate from college and succeed in life. At CASA we are not just a school, but a movement to raise the bar for education in Phoenix.


What makes CASA unique?

High Expectations
At CASA Academy, the road to college starts in kindergarten. From the first day of school, CASA Academy staff hold high expectations for all scholars. Teachers consistently provide rigorous instruction to ensure that all scholars are on or above grade level at the end of the year.

A Focus on the Primary Grades
CASA Academy focuses on Phoenix’s youngest learners, providing instruction that is targeted to their developmental and intellectual needs.

The Best Teachers
CASA Academy’s teachers are hired from across the United States and are selected after an intensive interview process which includes a phone screening, multiple interviews, a demo lesson and data analysis. In the 2018-19 school year, 92% of CASA’s staff returned to CASA.

Authentic Approaches
All instruction at CASA Academy is authentic, meaning that whatever taught in a lesson is taught in a way in which scholars can apply it to the real world. This allows scholars to make connections and apply their knowledge to their own experiences.

Character Education
It is not enough to be smart; scholars must have strong social skills to succeed in life as well. CASA Academy explicitly teaches the skills necessary for scholars to develop and maintain strong character through a culture that cultivates kindness and professionalism.

Priority on Scholars and Families
CASA Academy exists to serve scholars and families and our staff works relentlessly to accomplish our mission. All families are provided with every staff member’s phone number and are encouraged to contact staff members with any needs or questions they may have.

Extended School Day
CASA Academy has an extended school day that provides 275 more hours of instruction each year than required, ensuring that CASA scholars have more time to learn. More time learning means better academic outcomes for scholars.
