Circle Academy Charter School (CACS) offers all students, including students with special needs (SWD and ELLs) a comprehensive and demanding elementary school program in a trauma-sensitive environment where each student is taught to become reflective and creative learners and critical thinkers. CACS will help students develop 21st century skills, knowledge and dispositions necessary for success in school and in life through the use of 1.) Rigorous Curriculum that Emphasizes Literacy (reading, writing, speaking and listening) and is Aligned with the NYS Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS); 2.) Personalized Learning; 3.) Data driven decision making; and 4.) Extended School Year. All students will develop a passion for learning and achieve at least proficiency in all subjects in a school culture that emphasizes continuous academic, social and emotional growth, accountability, and collaboration.
