 Creating Arts with Spirituality and Academics

We are excited to offer some new options for CASA this 2022-2023 School Year. If you have a child who will be attending ASC (after school care) this year, consider enrolling him or her in one of these fun and enriching classes.

2022-2023 CASA classes will be posted here once schedule is finalized. 

We are pleased to offer optional, after-school classes to our students. Our CASA program offers
students classes in disciplines such as violin, guitar, tennis, and drama. Classes are offered after
the end of the regular school day and are optional. CASA classes are convenient to parents in
that they are held on campus and do not require parents to miss time from work or to drive all
over town to their child’s lessons.
