What Our Parents Are Saying
We are a K-8, dually accredited school located in Oro Valley, Arizona. Despite serving in K-8 academia for almost five decades, we refuse to rest on our experience and therefore continually evaluate and reflect on our program to ensure that we are effectively meeting the needs of our student body. Our highly-qualified team provides a differentiated, stimulating program for every student enrolled. As a school community, we are wholeheartedly invested in walking out our faith, both inside and outside our school walls. At Casas Christian School we care about the spiritual, emotional, physical and academic well-being of each child enrolled, and strategically ensure that each child encounters a rigorous, relevant, but still relational educational experience.
What We Are All About
We know that through Christ all things are possible. Our goal is for our students to grow in their relationship with Christ, their relationships with each other and the world around them, and in their understanding of all disciplines. Much prayer and planning goes into our Expected Student Outcomes’s, but we know that ultimately God owns it all.
What sets us apart
We augment our school curriculum with an extensive after school program offering STEM Scouts, Mandarin, golf, tennis, orchestra, and more. Not only do these programs help students to discover some of their own natural and unique gifts, but also stimulate a desire for deeper understanding of truth in an ever-changing world.
WE TEACH our students the importance of growing strong relationships with one another and with God.
