Colorado Springs Charter Academy is love for community expressed in action. We are entrusted with dear purchase, to bind our students’ days of innocence and joy with structure, content and character.
To accomplish this, we cultivate the individual potential of all our students by:

Fostering self-advocacy, passion, citizenship, and exemplary character
Holding individualized high expectations
Involving and welcoming parents and community members.
Our Approach to
The Core Knowledge Sequence is designed to provide students with a rich vocabulary and an expansive base of knowledge on which future instruction can build, broaden, and deepen. The sequence systematically delivers detailed, explicit grade-specific content that can be taught consistently year after year. This content is organized to spiral through the grade levels, becoming more sophisticated and detailed in successive grades. Ultimately, The Core Knowledge Sequence enables students to draw from a deep well of knowledge and retain information longer. At the same time, skill development is enhanced when the teaching of skills occurs in the context of meaningful (and memorable) content.
In addition to the Core Knowledge Sequence, CSCA emphasizes the teaching of basic skills with a traditional approach built on structure, student character development, high expectations for students and staff, mutual respect, and academic excellence.
A tuition-free, motivating atmosphere, that is well managed with low discipline incidents
An effective, challenging, non-common core curriculum that achieves high academic standards
A close-knit community that brings families and students together through our academics and extracurricular activities
