VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS
Classical Academy Online places a high value on a well-rounded education, including exposure to the world of visual and performing arts. CAO provides students with a variety of college prep and elective performing arts choices including art, digital art, band, guitar, choir, drama, dance, and music appreciation. In addition to performing arts courses, CAHS sponsors a fall play and a spring musical each year. Students at all levels of acting experience are welcome to try out or join the crew team!
STUDENT LEADERSHIP & CARE PROGRAM
Leadership empowers students to discover their personal leadership style. Through team building exercises and individual self-reflection, students are taught to challenge themselves. Students are equipped with tools and strategies to develop habits and daily practices in order to effectively communicate with others.
The CARE Program was formed to have students mentor other students while in high school. Students facilitate forums that target their individual concerns. These forums create meaningful relationships and build community.
CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS
The associated student body organizes and approves clubs which allow students to meet and gather around a particular interest with a faculty advisor. CAO has 4 or more clubs meeting throughout the year on various days of the week.

The Caiman Way – Philosophy of Athletics
“The Caiman Way” philosophy of athletics focuses more on character development than the final score of the game. Athletes are taught to work hard, to live pure, to lead with courage, to honor their teams, and to be committed to their sport. Athletic competition allows athletes the opportunity to learn the values of discipline, commitment, respect, and hard work. Classical Academy High School’s coaches recognize that athletics is a platform to impact the lives of student-athletes. The Caiman Way hopes to teach student-athletes to apply the lessons learned in athletics to their lives off the athletic field. Our hope is that we will partner with parents to help impact young men and women to make a positive contribution to their community, long after their time in high school sports is over.
