Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

The 2020-2021 school year marks our twenty-second year of operation. Classical School is an instrumentality of the Appleton Area School District. It is our mission to create a successful learning environment through a rich and challenging classical education in reading, mathematics, and cultural literacy. Teachers use thoroughly researched, successful instructional techniques to present this carefully planned curriculum.

Thank You!

Our Classical School families have come through for us once again! The CCSA Board put out a request for additional funds for teacher materials due to the fact that our KAT donations were down this year. We were blown away by the generosity of our families and were able to order the requested items to support our teachers during these unusual times. Thank you!

FYI: NO CCSA BOARD MEETING THIS WEEK!

Drop Box

We are in the process of purchasing a drop box for families to drop off paperwork, etc. Stay tuned for more info.

Immunization Remindeers

Attention 6th Grade Parents: If your child has not yet received the Tdap vaccination, please contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment. Once the vaccine is received, please provide a copy of the updated shot record to the main office. If you do not wish to have your child immunized, you are required to sign a waiver. You may obtain a waiver form from the school office.


Attention Kindergarten Parents: If your child has not yet received his/her "kindergarten shots" (DTaP, Polio, MMR, Varicella), please contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment. Once the vaccines have been received, please provide a copy of the updated shot record to the main office. If you do not wish to have your child immunized, you are required to sign a waiver.

Per Wisconsin state statue, all students are required to be fully immunized or have a waiver on file by the 30th day of school.
