Considering Citizens Academy Southeast for your child?

We're honored you're considering our school for your child (or children!). We are really proud of the community of learners we have built here. But don't take our word for it 🙂 Here is CAS in a nutshell, from one of our current 3rd graders:

"This is such a cool school. The teachers are really nice and also challenge me to do really well. It's a lot different than my old school. I like coming here every day. There is a lot of homework, but I am doing well and keeping up!"

- CAE 3rd Grader


We work hard every day to make sure every one feels cared for, challenged, and motivated to learn.

"I like to come to school every day because I have the best teacher and I have the best friends. The best thing about CAE is we can go on field trips like the zoo, the rain forest, Playhouse Square, and the apple farm."
