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 ISD

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 Tech is open to students across Bexar County and is San Antonio’s first high-tech high school. An in-district charter of the San Antonio Independent School District, CAST Tech is a first-of-its-kind model where college coursework is embedded in the program and students can graduate with up to two years of college credit, industry-recognized certifications and portfolios that feature rigorous, multi-disciplinary projects and other examples of their work. CAST Tech students will prepare for careers in coding, cyber security, gaming, web design, user experience entrepreneurship, business, and more.

Higher Education

CAST Tech students have participated in summer opportunities at both SAC and UTSA, and those relationships continue to grow.
