Help Shape the Future of San Antonio

CAST Schools are partnership schools, co-created by industry, civic leaders, and other external partners, who participate in decisions about curriculum, budget and school governance. In addition to their critical role in the school design, our partners provide mentorship, real-world work experiences, internships, and job opportunities, shaping the career readiness of students and helping them seamlessly transition into college or the workforce while nurturing a homegrown and committed source of talent.

San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) has been located in the heart of the city for more than 100 years and is Bexar County’s third-largest school district. Under the leadership of Superintendent Pedro Martinez, SAISD serves more than 50,000 students among more than 90 campuses.

CAST Med High School is the third campus in the CAST network and the second within SAISD. CAST Med curriculum has an emphasis on medicine and biomedical research. The CAST Med campus, located at 2601 Louis Bauer Drive in the Brooks development, was converted into high school instructional spaces to include a 215-seat auditorium and lab spaces for biology, biotech and engineering, virtual anatomy and computer stations. CAST Med is operated as an in-district charter in SAISD, and open to students across Bexar County. CAST Med opened its first class of 150 9th graders in Fall 2019.
