CAS opened in 1995 and is the largest running charter school in Southern Arizona. Offering 100% highly-qualified caring teaching staff, individualized instruction, and small classroom sizes, we make sure all of our students get the quality education they deserve.
We make it easy on parents by becoming partners in their child’s learning. Parents can expect regular updates on student progress and free required school supplies for each of our students. Additionally, CAS provides free hot breakfast and lunch programs, and free “CAS CARE” programs that will have structured activities in addition to help with homework and tutoring. The programs allow us to offer parents a safe and secure environment for their children as well as an enriching and enjoyable experience for the students. This program will be available from 7:00 a.m. until the start of the school day and from the end of school until 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Is CAS a private school?
No, CAS is a public charter school offering a tuition free option for Arizona students. We have no religious affiliation, and emphasize ongoing character development and respect.
Do CAS students take standardized tests?
You bet! Our students participate in AIMS state testing and Stanford tests as a way to measure our progress and theirs. We’ve very proud of our consistently strong AIMS scores. In fact, we tend to out-score other local schools.
Does CAS offer extra-curricular activities?
Of course! Extra-curicular activities help students grow and develop. CAS offers a variety of clubs to excite our students including: robotics, gardening, tech club, and art.
Is tutoring available if my student needs help?
Absolutely! We have after-school tutoring offered daily to help our students succeed. Teachers or parents can request a student attend tutoring and many of our students take advantage of this opportunity.
What if I need to drop off my kid before school or pick him up late?
No problem. We offer FREE care for our students starting at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m. These enrichment programs give our students a safe, supervised environment before and after school at no cost or inconvenience to our parents.
Do you offer transportation?
Unfortunately, we do not have a bus system at this time. However, our free before and after care offer more flexibility so parents can get to and from work on time.
Have a question we didn’t answer?

Knowledge really is sweet! Thanks to the K-5 teachers and The Center for Academic Success’s very own high school student council, we were able to have such an event. Kids at the event were able to eat Popsicle of different flavors, and enjoy their teachers’ company and friends for a fun time. Where and when do we have this event? This exclusive party is usually held 4 times every school year, mainly after report cards come out. This party is held for the top-grading students, listing from Honor Roll and Principal’s List. Next chance to make the list will be at Spring Break. Study and hard work pays off for these youngsters, hope everyone gets invited next time!
