Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning St. Cassian School celebrates each student’s uniqueness and develops practices that address their talents and strengths. Teachers design lessons and establish learning targets that foster growth and aim to maximize the potential of each child. With this premise, teachers instruct using advanced strategies, techniques, and researched based activities, such as those prescribed by Mazano’s High Yield Strategies, Blooms' Taxonomy of Learning and Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
