The Capital Area School for the Arts (CASA) is an arts magnet school (soon to be full-time Charter School) located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA. It was founded in 2001 as a partnership between the Capital Area Intermediate Unit and Open Stage of Harrisburg. After first moving through several sites in downtown Harrisburg, the school now resides in its permanent location in the first floor of Strawberry Square. Since CASA is located downtown, the students have the opportunity to use the city as the “classroom”, because of the numerous resources the offered (such as the nearby Susquehanna Art Museum and the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. The total enrollment of the school is 150 students from 5 counties and 25 school districts. Students must attend 1 of 2 sessions daily and choose one of five artistic areas in which they will concentrate, such as; visual arts, film, music, dance, or theater. Beginning in the 2010-2011 school year, a creative writing discipline was added for PM classes. Morning classes are studio-based while afternoon classes focus on collaborative interdisciplinary work. The culmination of the afternoon classes’ work is a one-night student-produced performance at the nearby Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts.
