Today we are with Tacey Clayton Cundy, CEO of CASA Academy. CASA Academy provides early academic foundation and character skills necessary to graduate from college and succeed in life. Before CASA opened, many of the students in CASA’s community did not have the opportunity to attend a high performing elementary school. CASA Academy seeks to fill that void and dramatically change the life trajectory for the community’s youngest students by ensuring its students are on the path to graduation from college.
