Science │ Technology │ Engineering │ Arts │Mathematics
Coral Academy of Science is a tuition-free K-12 public charter school sponsored by the WCSD and serves over 1,500 students in the Reno area. Coral Academy was established in 2000 with a strong emphasis in Math and Science with only 57 students in 7th and 8th grades.
In 2008, the Coral Academy of Science Elementary Campus was opened on Valley Road, and on August 10, 2015, Coral Academy opened a state-of-the-art high school campus at 6275 Neil Road. In 2021, Coral Academy expanded into a new elementary school at 6155 Neil Road, serving grades K-5. The most recent edition is 1595 Sky Mountain Drive, which will be opening for the 2023-24 school year.
Coral Academy provides a safe learning environment supported by a diverse community and student body that is dedicated to a rigorous college preparatory and career-ready curriculum.
CAS is the largest charter school in Washoe County, serving over 1800 students, including 350 high school students from multiple municipalities and cities.
CAS has created a college preparatory culture which starts at our elementary campus and germinates throughout a child’s career during middle school and ripens at our high school and beyond. The expectation at CAS, beginning from kindergarten, is not “Will you go to college?” but “Which college will you attend?”
