Welcome to Community Roots Academy (CRA), an innovative and close-knit kindergarten through eighth grade public charter school located in the heart of Orange County, California.
Project-based learning is at the center of CRA. Students learn by doing, as they actively explore real-world problems and challenges. CRA is committed to instilling the skills for success needed in our global society.
Semester-long projects teach students multiple, fundamental disciplines and essential 21st Century skills. As a result, they become independent thinkers, responsible citizens and active community members.
While the Capistrano Unified School District has general oversight of CRA’s activities, our school is governed by our own board of trustees.
