Welcome to the CASA Course Catalog

Attending CASA

Please note a few important things about coming to CASA

All students must complete a paper application and meet with their counselors at their home high schools before completing the on-line portion of the application.

For all classes: please be sure that you have completed the prerequisite classes and have the appropriate grades in those prerequisites before choosing a class. 

Students need to be aware that all classes at CASA, even those that are not Advanced Placement courses, require homework, reading and a high-level of engagement.

Special Requirements

There are special requirements for students interested in taking the following classes.

Art, 2D, 3D, Sculpture and Photography

All students interested in taking any form of art at CASA must submit a portfolio of 5 pieces of art showing a range of capabilities and subject, either in person or via email. Portfolios may be submitted to: jennifer.gebbie@berkleyschools.org and they will be forwarded to the teachers.  Arrangements can be made to show art in person by calling 248-586-8860.

Advanced Dance

CASA Advanced Dance is designed for students with some dance background. All students wishing to enroll in dance must attend an audition class.  Students come to CASA and participate during B and C hours: 1:15-3:10 to be evaluated by the dance instructor.  The audition dates for 2019-2020 are: Wednesday April 24 and Thursday April 25, 2019.

All Social Studies classes

CASA teachers have asked that students submit a sample essay to ensure that they are prepared to be successful in CASA classes.  For history students, please go to this link and write the required essay: CASA AP History Pre Assessment.

Attendance at CASA

Since CASA serves students from seven different sending districts, with seven different school calendars, we work to create our own CASA calendar that may, on occasion, differ from the students' home school schedule.  Students are expected to attend CASA when CASA in is session, even if their home district is closed.

Please Pay careful attention to the CASA calendar.  CASA Calendar dates are published in August, on-line, via email, and printed in the CASA Student Handbook.
