CAS Program

"Our son was in the CAS program at FBA and is now in high school. He was extremely well prepared and organized because of the skills he learned in this program. He grew spiritually and matured as he received the support he needed in a loving and caring environment."
-FBA Parent

Center for Academic Success

The goal for CAS is to assist our FBA students in developing tools of independent learning for the classroom and life while training them to see themselves as competent, confident learners. CAS focuses on strengthening the underlying causes of learning difficulties by developing four key components: cognition, perception, academics and emotions.
