Through engaging classroom and real-world experiences, our students build the intellect, community connections, and global perspective necessary to make real impact.
In the company of girls, students develop transformative relationships with each other and with their teachers. Intentional, collaborative and interdisciplinary, a Castilleja 6th through 12th education is carefully scaffolded to allow each student the opportunity to become her best and most authentic self. She graduates with the self-confidence and concern for others necessary for a lifetime of compassionate leadership.
At each grade level, we explore different age-appropriate themes that allow students to develop their voices and take more responsibility for their learning.
- 6th Grade: Exploration
- 7th Grade: Identity
- 8th Grade: Engagement
- 9th Grade: Building Foundations
- 10th Grade: Creating Connections
- 11th Grade: Exploring Perspectives
- 12th Grade: Understanding Leadership
We urge students to develop multiple perspectives by listening to others’ stories and learning to tell their own. Our Global Investigator Trips ask students to consider global challenges and embrace ambiguity, and on campus, students tackle interdisciplinary projects and embark on the college journey.
In the longer run and for wide-reaching issues, more creative solutions tend to come from imaginative interdisciplinary collaboration.Robert J. Shiller
Creativity depends on interactions between feeling and thinking, and across different disciplinary boundaries and fields of ideas.”Ken Robinson, Out of Our Minds, 2011
