Live The Legacy...Touch the Future
Inspired by her life, and acting in her memory, Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences honors Christa McAuliffe by educating the next generation of leaders, scientists, philosophers, artists, and yes, teachers to be fully-prepared for the dynamic world of the 21st Century. As Christa would say, we touch the future.
CMASAS opened in July 2009 and is headquartered in Lake Oswego, Oregon. CMASAS is the culmination of over 25 years of combined experience, knowledge, and perseverance in alternative education of its founders, Tamra Excell and Christopher Geis.
CMASAS has combined the latest in online educational technology, integrated various online curricula, with the Personalized Education Philosophy, and CMASAS learning model to fit the needs of today's generation. Long-time associates serving as administrators, office staff, and instructors/coaches foster a sense of community and an atmosphere of harmony where new ideas can take root and grow more easily… where innovation is welcomed and applauded.
The video below honors Christa McAuliffe and the students who have made CMASAS one of the best private online K-12 schools in the world. We are proud of their accomplishments and are amazed every year with what our students accomplish by living out Christa's philosophy on living: to get as much out of life as possible.
