Christina Seix Academy

The Christina Seix Academy (CSA) is a community-based school established in 2012 that provides scholarships and support to students, enrolled in pre-K through 8th grade, and their single-caregiver families.  The school promotes a holistic approach to supporting children and families and provides ongoing medical and wellness services and programming.  CSA is interested in research on a wide variety of health topics such as nutrition, physical activity, asthma, mental health, and childhood and adolescent obesity.  Additionally, CSA wants to know how it can best prepare its students and their families for the transition to high school.  What are best practices for supporting 7th and 8th graders and their families to set them up for success in high school?
