Since the 2007-08 school year, we have followed a tradition in the CSA District of selecting an annual intellectual theme to use as the structure from which we teach our most important child development and preparation for adult life lessons. The theme is chosen in alignment with our five core philosophies – continuous progress/mastery learning, whole child, developmental approach, high expectations and internal motivation.
Our CSA District-wide theme for 2016-17 is Celebrating Innovation, Choice and Character. Featured at the top of the design of our theme poster is a word cloud in the shape of a 20. It contains several words and phrases that reference the mission, philosophies and values that formed the foundation upon which CSA was built and refined over these 20 years. Innovation, Choice and Character are a part of the 20th Anniversary logo because we think they are central to CSA
Innovation is the first theme word because that is what charter schools should be about as they drive best practice and education reform in public education.
Choice is the second theme word because it is also what every charter school should be about, another important goal behind the creation of charter schools.
The last word in our theme is Character. Guided by our five core philosophies, innovations and best practices, we attempt to work with you to uphold the character that our families choose for their children.
For the past 20 years the founders, parents and staff have worked together to uphold these values. As we celebrate this milestone, we look forward to continuing to reinforce this theme for the next 20 years.
