CAST Lead is a career-themed high school that will prepare students for leadership positions in the growing retail, hospitality and tourism, and ecommerce industries. These industries represent some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic in our city, offering students an opportunity to align their passion with industry and higher education leaders committed to their success.
Students enrolled in CAST Lead follow one of three pathways:
CAST Lead is open to all students on a lottery basis within Bexar and surrounding counties. The school is tuition-free and offers students a chance to learn through project-based learning, mentorships and internships, as well as earn up to 2 years of college credit, and-or industry certifications.
From the hands-on learning that our students will experience inside and outside the classroom to the connection to industry mentors through job shadowing and internship opportunities, we firmly believe that CAST Lead will be a huge benefit to East Central ISD and the San Antonio area.
