A School for Every Dream and Every Future

The Centers for Applied Science and Technology (CAST) is a network of partnership schools in three school districts across San Antonio. Currently, CAST includes one pre-k through 12 campus, and three high schools with pathways designed to prepare students for high-demand local careers. CAST will open its sixth school, CAST TEACH High School.
CAST is redefining teaching and learning with a focus on real-world experiences, and co-designing our schools with employers, industry leaders, master teachers, and education innovators.
