Fort Caspar Academy (FCA) is a public school within the Natrona County School District (NCSD) in Casper, Wyoming. FCA serves students from grades kindergarten to fifth grade. It was established in 1995 by a group of parents as an initiative in school reform, and has stirred interest because of an innovative approach that combines traditional concepts of instruction and discipline with a modern understanding of childhood cognitive processes. This takes place in a school environment that is caring and nurturing, where highly trained professional staff are concerned not only with scholastic discipline, but also with each student as a person.
FCA students, teachers, and staff started the 2008/2009 school year in a new building. Over $100,000.00 was raised by parents and teachers for playground equipment at the new site. Kindergartners enjoy their own secure playground area. Each classroom is equipped with laptop computers, and a computer lab just off the library has 25 additional computers available for large group instruction and assessment. Also housed within the library is an Academic Focus room with stadium seating that can accommodate larger groups for presentations.
