School Year Off to a Great Start!
This year's start has been the biggest and the best yet! Each year The Chase Academy has the greatest joy of expanding. This year we've expanded so many things:
- A New Deland Campus for K-5th Elementary.
- A student body of almost 60 students.
- Two High School Rooms: Freshman & Seniors.
- Our FIRST Senior Class!!
- A New Life-skills (8th-12th grade) Training Classroom.
- New Electives that include Guitar, Computer Applications, Drama and Foreign Language.
- Five brand new teachers and Two new assistants.
- New Computers in EVERY classroom and new laptops & printers for each teacher.
- New Life Skills Center renovations progressing
- New C.A.P.E. Crusaders monthly donor program created

When I think I can't go on, I take a look at the video below and know that these faces - these kids - make it all worth while.
Stay tuned and we'll explore some of these new programs in more detail, but for now, enjoy our First Quarter Video:
