“The vision of Fort Caspar Academy is educational excellence through a comprehensive, rigorous curriculum and virtuous character development with a strong student-staff-parent partnership.”

Fort Caspar Academy is proud to have earned recognition by the U.S. Department of Education as a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School. To be considered for this honor, schools must score in the top 15% of schools on state assessments. Our students, parents, teachers and staff have worked as a team—as a family—to achieve consistently strong academic performance.  At FCA, parents are empowered to develop and refine the ongoing practices of the school.

The effectiveness of FCA’s academic curriculum is maximized with a parallel curriculum emphasizing Character Development. We believe it is our responsibility to help students become successful, happy adults. Our Core Virtues (responsibility, hope, respect, diligence, honesty, courage, gratitude, faithfulness, compassion, forgiveness and humility) go a long way toward meeting that goal.



Curriculum at FCA is rigorous and sequential, based upon Wyoming’s Content and Performance Standards.

In early grades students learn strong foundational skills in math using Saxon Math.  Intermediate students learn conceptual mathematical thinking skills using My Math, Eureka Math, Khan Academy and a variety of supplements.

Our comprehensive reading and writing program, The Spalding Method, focuses on phonics, vocabulary, fluency, text comprehension, spelling, grammar, handwriting and vivid self-expression. Cursive writing is taught beginning in second grade.

Art, Music and P.E. classes are an integrated part of FCA’s overall curriculum, enhancing character education, reading and math skills to benefit the whole child.

Instrumental music instruction in Band and Orchestra classes provided before school hours through a partnership between Fort Caspar Academy and VIBES Fine and Performing Arts.

Science and Social Studies are taught at each grade level.



Band and Orchestra are offered before school. Fourth and fifth grades may participate in volleyball and basketball on campus through the Casper Recreation Center.  After school activities include Student Council, Lego Robotics Club, Jr. Lego Robotics Club, P.E. Club, Spelling Bee, Chess Club, Science Club, and Young Engineering & Scientists Club.



Classes at Fort Caspar Academy begin at 8:45 a.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. Before-school tutoring activities are available starting at 8 a.m. After-school activities vary in times.



Parents are so crucial to the “heart-beat” of FCA that all incoming parents will be invited to a Parent Orientation. You may also call the school and request an orientation at your convenience.
