The Center for Advanced Studies and the Arts will
provide an enriched learning environment for academically and
artistically talented students.
The CASA Experience
CASA is one of a kind!
The concept, the courses and the diversity make the CASA
experience truly exceptional!
CASA is a six-school consortium.
Students from Berkley, Clawson, Ferndale, Lamphere, Madison, and Oak
Park High Schools attend CASA in the afternoon.
CASA courses are both
challenging and rewarding. Students elect to take two 55-minute courses
designed to engage students in higher levels of thinking. Please see the
Courses link for course times.
CASA currently offers 14
Advanced Placement courses. Students intending to pursue
post-secondary education are encouraged to participate. Students taking
Advanced Placement exams may earn college credit upon successful
completion of the exam.
Advanced courses include two world languages,
philosophy, interpretive literature, world history, and genetics, just to name a few.
Fine Arts courses, such as dance, acting, stage design, and art, allow students to expand their
talents. Students are able to engage in competition, both local
and regional, for possible scholarships. A complete listing and
description of the 2013-2014 courses offered at CASA can be found
