The Centers for Applied Science and Technology is a 501 (c) 3 network of public-partnership schools working with San Antonio area independent school districts. The CAST Mission is to reinvent schooling to maximize options for students, while preparing them for the jobs of the future. By partnering with CAST Schools, leaders have the opportunity to play a direct role in the career readiness of students and provide mentorship to help students seamlessly transition into college or the workforce, while nurturing a homegrown and committed source of talent. CAST Schools also partner with civic, higher education and nonprofit leaders to get students outside the four walls of school buildings and into workplaces, travel, and other real-world experiences.
CAST STEM will be the second in a San Antonio network of career-themed high schools focused on connecting students to high demand jobs, with CAST STEM specializing in Engineering, Power and Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, and Global Logistics. This structured, accelerated, individualized approach will ensure that every CAST STEM graduate will have acquired the hard and soft skills that are essential to placement in one of San Antonio’s well-paying, high-demand jobs. A CAST STEM teacher will serve as a pioneer teacher at an innovative school facilitating student learning through cross-curricular, project-based learning, blended learning, and personalized learning. Teachers must be committed to student success and to the ultimate goal of transforming education through working alongside industry and university partners to strengthen the learning environment for the 21st Century learner.
