  1. Scholarship - All students will meet or exceed the CCSA standards in all academic areas.

  2. Strong Character - All students will demonstrate scholarly habits and the CCSA core values.

  3. Craftsmanship - All students will possess the 21st century skills to create academic and artistic works with high quality craftsmanship.

  4. Purpose - All students will have a clear goal and action plan for their future academic/career pursuits.

To bring the vision to fruition, we will embark upon a strategic approach that focuses on developing and maintaining each of the following essential elements:

  • A rigorous standards-based, arts integrated curriculum
