Citizens Academy Southeast

Academic Excellence, Responsible Citizenship

Welcome To Citizens Academy Southeast


We are so excited to announce that we will be opening Citizens Academy Southeast this August 2015. This will be our third Citizens Academy in Cleveland, due to community support and demand for more high-quality schools like our founding Citizens Academy. Our long-term teachers and leaders from our founding campus are currently hard at work getting ready for our first school year.

Citizens Academy Southeast is tuition-free and will provide its students with a safe and nurturing environment.  We will offer smaller class sizes for literacy and math, personalized learning activities, and a focus on citizenship as well as academic excellence.  CAS will have 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”.
