Carver is very enthusiastic about and proud of our partnership with the Classical Studies Magnet Academy (CSMA) in Bridgeport. This is a "themed" Pre-K to 8th grade public school in Bridgeport’s West Side neighborhood for more than 400 students. Its curriculum of classical literature, art and music utilizes the Paideia instructional methodology (traditional lecturing, coaching, and the Socratic method of extended discussion). Instruction is project-based, involving frequent assemblies, presentations and field trips. CSMA occupies a 123-year-old structure, the oldest school still in use by the district. The school also rents a nearby closed Catholic school for their Pre-K to 2nd grade students.

Carver afterschool programming extends the school day with hands-on and project-based learning opportunities. Carver also brings in to the school many professionals from the area who are experts in their respective fields, such as in the STEAM subjects. Some of these partners are Bagwell Academy of Martial Arts, Discovery Museum, Mad Science, Maritime Aquarium, Stepping Stones Museum, Kids Fashion, and the Scratch Coding Club.
