Nakikilala sa pamamagitan pagtutok nito sa mga kritikal na pag-iisip, panlipunan katarungan, media pagbasa, and community, CAS offers an academically rigorous course of study and trains its students to communicate effectively in both print and electronic media through curriculum built around experiential learning–learning by doing. Bilang karagdagan sa mga tradisyunal na paraan ng pagpapahayag tulad ng bungang-isip, essays, lab ulat at mga papeles ng pananaliksik, mag-aaral na lumikha ng kanilang sariling mga video, Podcast at print proyekto, at maglakbay sila sa Museo, sinehan, and cultural centers.

When students commit to the CAS curriculum, kusang-loob sila magbigay ng kaligtasan ng homogenous na pag-aaral at malaman kung paano makipag-usap, magtulungan at Excel sa loob ng isang magkakaibang komunidad. Ang kurikulum at ang mga guro matiyak ang isang kapaligiran ng mga pang-akademikong kahirapan habang tumutulong at isinasaalang-alang ang iba't ibang estilo ng pag-aaral at mga karanasan sa kultura. Upang Excel sa Cas, a student must meet the dual challenges of intellectual mastery and effective collaboration in the classroom and in the larger world.

CAS classes are heterogeneous and challenging; students who have achieved different levels of academic success are taught together in demanding academic core and elective classes designed to engage every student. For students who are interested in supplementary academic challenges, CAS offers a second English class for 11th and 12th graders: Advance Placement (Ap) Ingles. Classes are integrated with cross-disciplinary assignments and consistent articulation between the grade levels. The English/History Core emphasizes written communication throughout the fouryear curriculum and focuses on the development of critical thinking and analysis. Opportunities to explore areas of interest to individual students exist in all grades. CAS classes are challenging, benefiting students who have high achievement records as well as those who have struggled in school. The school’s collaborative teaching model and close student-teacher relationships create an environment in which teachers are able to carefully assess student effort and performance and find ways to motivate and challenge each student to meet their full intellectual potential.
