CAST Schools Network is a San Antonio-based, 501 (c)(3) nonprofit network of career-themed public high schools and one PK- 12 Academy. Our mission is to reinvent schooling in order to maximize options for students while preparing them for college, career, and life.
Explore the world of retail, hospitality and tourism, and ecommerce. CAST Lead students will have the opportunity to redesign what the future of these industries look like, working with higher education and industry partners including Whataburger, Visit San Antonio, CE Group and more, ultimately reinventing an industry of the future.

Created in partnership with East Central ISD
CAST Schools were co-created as a San Antonio regional partnership between independent school districts, higher education institutions, and local employers as a new model of teaching and learning. Today, CAST Schools serve nearly 1,900 students within its five schools.
Students select a CAST school based on their interests, set personal goals, and design their school experience with the support of their teachers, industry, and other nonprofit partners. Students tackle real-world projects designed by local employers and civic leaders and work in teams alongside mentors from the field. The academic model began with CAST Tech High School in 2017. Today, CAST Schools offers one model tailored for five different schools to educate youth in San Antonio.
