Fort Caspar is characterized by a structured and consistent learning environment. We achieve this in part by a behavior management system guided by our graduated “tickets”. This begins with a warning and graduates levels through a visit to the principal’s office. The system fosters accountability and helps students to be aware of and adjust their behavior when necessary. Learn more in the Parent/Student Handbook.

FCA does have dress code guidelines in addition to what NCSD requires. This includes – but is not limited to – a requirement that shirts must be tucked in and belts must be worn with pants that have belt loops. You can read more on our Dress Code page or in our Parent/Student Handbook.

Fort Caspar Academy is a public school and part of the Natrona County School District. Learn more about FCA’s history on our About Us page.
