Academic Excellence, Responsible Citizenship

Welcome to Citizens Academy Southeast (CAS), the newest campus of our award-winning Citizens Academy, founded in 1999. CAS opened its doors in 2014 in the Lee - Harvard neighborhood. At our school, we focus on preparing our students to be great not only as students, but as citizens. Have a look at this video about moving into our new home on Lotus Drive.


A Community Built On Virtues

The mission of Citizens Academy Southeast is to produce learners who exemplify academic excellence and responsible citizenship. Our vision is for every student to graduate from college and become a productive and civically engaged member of society.

We get their by what we call The Citizens Academy Way. We're proud of this transformative school culture that is the foundation of our success. The Citizens Academy Way (The CA Way) is a set of high academic and behavioral expectations that promote a sense of ambition, personal responsibility, and a ‘no excuses’ attitude in all of our students.
