At Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy we are inspired by providing a well-rounded education. We are dedicated to giving each child exposure to ideas, knowledge and ways of thinking. We are committed in our lessons to activating prior knowledge so that children progress with their learning at a deep level. We believe in teaching to the Multiple Intelligences–a foundation for recognizing and making the most of individual student’s abilities and talents. In 2017, we received an A rating from the Ohio Department of Education for Overall Value Added, meaning the amount of learning a student achieves in one school year.
Our school days are planned so that children receive a solid foundation in core subjects and enrichment subjects.
Rotating classes in Arts, Technology, Physical Education and Spanish occur daily and often feature integration of our unique Paragon™ curriculum to extend the immersive learning environment beyond the daily Paragon™ lesson.
Extended Learning Time
Part of our approach to improving student learning additionally includes extending the school day by one hour and the school year by 20 days. Research shows that many students need additional time to master academic skills and knowledge. The extended school day and school year enables our students to graduate from High School with the equivalent of nearly four years more schooling than other children.
