Academic Excellence, Responsible Citizenship


Welcome to Citizens Academy Southeast, the third Citizens Academy in Cleveland! We opened our Southeast campus due to community support and demand for more high-quality schools like our founding Citizens Academy.

Citizens Academy Southeast is tuition-free and provides its students with a safe and nurturing environment.  We offer smaller class sizes for literacy and math, personalized learning activities, and a focus on citizenship as well as academic excellence.  CAS has an extended school day along with an after care enrichment program. The Citizens Academy model has a national reputation for quality, earning 4 consecutive “Excellent” and “Excellent with Distinction” ratings from the Ohio Department of Education, has been named a Blue Ribbon School from the United States Department of Education, and named an ODE “School of Honor”.
