Welcome to Community Roots Academy

CRA is a kindergarten through 8th grade learning community. Learning is embedded in a meaningful real-world context and children are deliberately taught to see the connections between their formal education and the world. At CRA, students combine curiosity and application, leading to a deep understanding of content,self-motivation and confidence. These skill sets empower students to take on challenges in order to become who they want to be and excel to their fullest potential.
