The community at Classical Academy is fantastic, very involved & helpful. They maintain a truly caring & concerned atmosphere for students & parents alike. Safety is also utmost important here & well monitored. The teachers & staff are very supportive, providing a diverse education & challenging academics to prepare students for college & life after HS. Resources are readily available (such as tutoring) & students are encouraged to use these helpful & beneficial opportunities to improve their grades/scores.
My daughter went here for her 9th grade (before moving out of the area) & we would highly recommend this charter school for an exceptional education that surpasses a "regular" school setting by far!

I attended CAHS all four years of my high school career and absolutely loved it! The teachers and admin really care about your personal success and well-being, not just your grades. The students are kind and considerate of their classmates and overall pretty respectful of their teachers. There are so many other good things about the school, but to keep it brief, I'll just leave it at this: Small campus, nurturing academic environment, pretty accepting student body. This is not your average high school.
Classical Academy has prepared me academically and socially to work hard, dream big, and care for others. My school encourages my dream of dancing and provides wonderful teachers and assistance. Classical Academy makes community a priority, and they care deeply about their students. I would highly recommend this school to my peers.
Classical Academy also provides many extracurricular activities to choose from such as dance, football, tennis, cheerleading, and many more. They also have many different clubs and student bodies that inspire students to become self-led and independent learners.
