Cornerstone Academy for Social Action Middle School (CASA)
About the Learning Program
Our school provides a holistic learning environment dedicated to developing 21st Century skills. Our curriculum focuses on intellectual, social, and emotional development. We encourage students to work collaboratively, think critically, solve problems, analyze and synthesize information, practice adaptability, be curious, and build communication skills. Our teachers use Socratic seminars, performance tasks, project-based learning, technology, and traditional methods of teaching. Teachers check for understanding multiple times during instruction, as well as at the end of a lesson. Projects and performance tasks allow students to transfer their skills into a product. Academic intervention services are provided in core subjects. The level of rigor allows our students to have success in high school, college, and beyond. We implement the multiple intelligences at our school where students have music, dance, entrepreneurship, computer science, art, drama and music production courses along with traditional course work.
