We have had wonderful results for our students for many years.  During the most recent school year, Citizens Academy earned the highest state rating by the Ohio Department of Education, “Excellent with Distinction”  — and for the previous three years — we have been rated “Excellent”  making us one of the best schools in Cleveland and the entire state of Ohio. We were also selected by the United States Department of Education as a 2011 Blue Ribbon School, making us one of the most highly regarded schools in the country! We are extremely proud of this accomplishment. Many thanks to our students, parents, families, staff, and leaders for making Citizens Academy such a great place for students to prepare for success in school, college, and life.

We’re proud to report strong ratings on the new 2014 State Report Card. We’re especially proud of Citizens Academy’s “A” rating in what is called “Value Add”, measuring each student’s progress from year to year. Here is a link to the full report cards for Citizens Academy and Citizens Academy East for 2014.

We are proud of the Citizens Academy journey. By 2008, we were performing as well as schools, both urban and suburban, throughout Ohio. However, by 2011 we had become one of the highest performing schools in Ohio and a National Blue Ribbon School. We are incredibly proud of all our staff, leaders, family members, and especially our teachers and students for all their hard work, determination, perseverance, and excellence! Have a look at this poster which highlights our Citizens journey (so far!).
