We envision an environment that encourages students to thrive through a diverse range of learning experiences. Our goal is to equip students not only for academic excellence, but also to lead gratifying and purposeful lives in their future academic and personal endeavors.

We are encouraging parents to register their children as soon as possible; however, at the present time there is no deadline to register. Once all the spaces are full then CSA will start a waitlist for the students.

Once the application is recieved, parents will be notfied to choose a date and time for their child’s screening assessment. Based on the results, the school will inform parents about the admission decision.

CSA firmly believes in the whole child teaching approach and the social-emotional well being of all students and adults. Instructional focus will be on building students’ strengths and their character, so that they can grow at their own pace. CSA will identify and promote the unique qualities in each child, and provide a nurturing learning environment that will instill the joy of learning in our children.
