About CASA's New Home


CASA is now located in the Oak Park NOVA building at 22180 Parklawn in Oak Park, just south of Nine Mile Road and west of Coolidge Highway.

When arriving at CASA, students and family members are to use the main entrance, door 01, off of Parklawn. CASA shares this building with the Oak Park NOVA Academy and Michigan Works. All of our classrooms are on the second floor, except for 2D and 3D Art, which have large, beautiful, newly renovated rooms on the first floor. Students are asked to go to their classrooms or to the CASA Media Center on the second floor immediately upon arrival as classes are going on throughout the building and we do not want to disturb others at their work.

If you have any questions about our new home, or CASA in general, please call the main office at 248-586-8860.

The CASA Experience

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, Lamphere, Madison, Oak Park and Pontiac High Schools attend CASA in the afternoon.

CASA courses are both challenging and rewarding, designed to engage students in higher levels of thinking. Please see the Classes & Staff link for more details.

CASA Offerings

CASA currently offers 16 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 three world languages, philosophy, biology electives, world history, astronomy, and genetics, just to name a few.

Fine Arts courses, such as dance, drawing and painting, photography and sculpture,  allow students to expand their talents. Students are able to engage in competition, both local and regional, for possible scholarships.
