CASA -- A partnership community outreach of John Knox Presbyterian Church and the Brazilian Christian Church (PCUSA).

 

"Casa" means "home", in Portuguese and Spanish. "Home" is a safe environment, where children should feel loved, respected and cared for. At CASA, we want your children to feel like they are in their "second home". Click on the CASA logo to see pictures of CASA in action!

 

CASA Philosophy

 

The philosophy of the Christian After School Academy ("CASA") is grounded in the Christian faith.

 

Jesus commands us to love one another, help one another and respect one another. Our program is a mission outreach to our community and has been created out of a love for children and families, recognizing that there is a need for assistance in providing a safe, loving environment for children of working parents:

 

  • We believe that children thrive educationally, emotionally, socially and personally when they are in an environment in which they feel safe, cared for and encouraged.
  • We believe that parents have a responsibility to give their children adult supervised care when they are unable to be with them themselves, and that our role is to assist them in doing so.
  • We believe that when children feel loved, cared for, included, positively challenged and directed, that they will learn these positive behaviors and claim them as their own values to be used in their life experiences.
  • We believe that we are all of one world, equal in our need for love and compassion. Each child is deserving of quality care, regardless of race, socio-economic background, familial circumstances, beliefs or abilities.
