Castilleja School’s Partnership for 21st Century Assessment empowers educators to develop tools that capture and measure students’ growth in the essential attitudes and skills needed to become effective learners and leaders in today’s world. These new assessment tools allow teachers to measure the initiative and self-knowledge students need to pursue intellectual and social challenge, the agility required to engage in creative problem solving, and the sense of purpose needed to join, support, and lead others to effect change now and in the future.
The Partnership for 21st Century Assessment is made possible with the support of an educational leadership grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation awarded in 2013. Castilleja was one of only 5 schools nationwide to receive this $250,000 award. The Castilleja Community made a 3:1 match—donating $750,000.
