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 seven-school consortium. Students from Berkley, Clawson, Ferndale, Hazel Park, 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 Classes & Staff 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, astronomy, 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 2016-2017 courses offered at CASA can be found by clicking on the Classes & Staff link above.
If you're taking AP Chem, Calc or Physics it's not too late to register for Boot Camp next week. Call CASA for details!
