About Us


The Capitol West Academy Difference

Today’s scholars are facing a rapidly changing world. But we believe that with the right support, every scholar can work hard, do the right thing, and overcome any challenges thrown their way. At CWA, we provide scholars with what they need to reach their potential and thrive in high school, college, and beyond. That’s why we emphasize both academic greatness and character excellence.

Academic Greatness

We emphasize academic skills that are essential for success in high school, college, and beyond: self-evaluation, planning and following through, perseverance, and quality work. Our teachers lay the foundation for scholars to master these skills with high expectations and individualized instruction. Tutoring, extracurricular activities and our after-school program support additional learning so every student can reach their full potential.

Character Excellence

We prioritize character excellence because we believe every child has the capacity to be a change agent. CWA has been named a National School of Character because of our emphasis on character education and our guiding values of respect, responsibility, honesty, and achievement. The entire CWA family makes a commitment to live these values. Daily communication with parents and an emphasis on service learning empower our scholars to become their best selves.
