A Community Built On Virtues

The mission of Citizens Academy East is to produce learners who exemplify academic excellence and responsible citizenship. Our vision is for every student to graduate from college and become a productive and civically engaged member of society.

We get there by what we call The Citizens Academy Way. We're proud of this transformative school culture that is the foundation of our success. The Citizens Academy Way (The CA Way) is a set of high academic and behavioral expectations that promote a sense of ambition, personal responsibility, and a ‘no excuses’ attitude in all of our students.
