Citizens Academy Southeast

Academic Excellence, Responsible Citizenship

Welcome To Citizens Academy Southeast


Citizens Academy Southeast is 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”.
