Empowering women since 1907.
Whether she comes to Castilleja as a 6th grader or a rising junior, every student shares in Castilleja’s traditions big and small. They provide a common experience through which friendships are forged and classes bond—and through which generations of alums are united in sisterhood.
One of our beloved year-round traditions at Casti is 8th grade speeches and senior speeches. In these rites of passage, students in Middle and Upper School address and inspire their peers at school-wide assemblies.
Opening Day at Castilleja is full of traditions and festivities that reinforce the joyful and supportive nature of our community.
