“Casper Classical Academy engages learners in a challenging classical education that fosters excellence, character, and independence.”

Casper Classical Academy is a public school, founded with a group of parents who wanted a school that offers a classical education with high expectations for all students, and a supportive staff dedicated to the success of students. CCA teaches a classical education that includes studying Western civilization and history, classical literature, and traditional subjects, including logic and Latin, and heavily emphasizing writing and analytical reading.

Programs

Casper Classical Academy follows a rigorous, classical, college-preparatory curriculum approved by the school’s Governing Council. Sixth and seventh graders take individual reading and writing classes, science, social studies, math, PE, and an elective course (band, orchestra, choir, art or Intro to Career & Tech Education) every day. Latin is taught every other quarter. Eighth graders take English, science, social studies, math, an elective course (band, orchestra, choir, art, or Intro to Career & Tech Education), logic, PE/Health, and either Latin or Spanish every day. For students who qualify with advanced scores and a teacher recommendation, they are placed in our accelerated reading, writing and/or math courses. Our every-day PE and fine and performing arts classes are something we are very proud to offer.

Additionally, twice a week during homeroom, we offer Interventions and Enrichments. Students who need an additional boost of help in ELA or math receive an intervention, while others receive an tenrichment course like jazz band, guitar, cooking, 3-on-3 basketball, etc.

Activities

Students may participate in Brain Bowl, Lego Robotics, Student Council, Excel Lunch, Destination Imagination, Math Club, Yearbook, Chess Club, Spelling Bee, and National Junior Honor Society.

In addition, Casper Classical Academy offers the full slate of middle-level sports including football, volleyball, cross country running, basketball, wrestling, track, nordic skiing, swimming, soccer, and cheerleading.
