"We pushed forward and we didn't give up; we were scared sometimes - of COVID, of the violence in the world, and sometimes, of our own situations at home - howver, we did it. We endured, and we are here together today to celebrate that accomplishment." - Sofia Rodriguez, Class of 2021 Graduate and Keynote Speaker
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.
