Center for Artistry and Scholarship

The Center for Artistry and Scholarship (CAS) is a nonprofit that fosters and mobilizes creative, arts-immersed schools, where students are making and doing, teachers are asking how and why, and schools are engaged in their community.

The Center for Artistry and Scholarship is a non-profit organization affiliated with the Conservatory Lab Charter School in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood. CAS works in three areas: promoting and disseminating the work of the Conservatory Lab Charter School, supporting innovative school leadership, and celebrating arts-immersed education.
