School Description:

Casper Classical Academy is a public school, founded with a group of parents who wanted an NCSD school that offers a classical education with high expectations for students, a small school setting and a supportive staff dedicated to the success of students. CCA teaches a classical education that includes studying Western civilization and history, classical literature (that which has stood the test of time), and traditional subjects, including logic and Latin, and heavily emphasizing writing and analytical reading.

Families:

Parental involvement is a vital aspect in the success of students and the school. A strong volunteer program supports CCA. Parent volunteers help develop an increased quality of education for our students. Parents are expected to attend at least two Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) meetings as part of their volunteer commitment to the school.

Parents also are responsible for ensuring that their student completes assigned homework and arrives at school on time.

Parent-teacher conferences are held at the end of the first and during the third quarter.

Weekly progress reports and newsletters will be sent home with each student.

Casper Classical Academy follows a classical, college-preparatory curriculum approved by the school’s governing council. Sixth-graders take reading and writing, science, social studies, math, P.E. and a fine and performing arts course (band, orchestra, choir or art). Seventh-graders take advanced writing, English, science, social studies, pre-algebra, a fine/performing arts class (band, orchestra, choir, or art), and P.E./health, plus Latin. Eighth-graders take English, science, social studies, algebra, fine/performing arts, P.E./health, Latin and logic. Ninth-graders take English, science, social studies, geometry, fine/performing arts, P.E., Spanish or Latin, and political discourse.

Students may participate in Brain Bowl, Lego Robotics, Show Choir, Yearbook, National Junior Honor Society and Jazz Band.

Casper Classical Academy offers the full slate of middle-level sports, including football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, wrestling, track and cheerleading.

At the beginning of each school year, newly enrolled students and their parents must attend an orientation.

A tutoring program is available for students needing extra help. The tutoring program is offered before and after regular school hours. Students who enroll at CCA mid-year are required to attend special tutoring at the school.

Students may get breakfast in the cafeteria starting at 7:20AM.
