There's a lot more to Castilleja than what happens in the classroom. Enjoy a few of our favorite videos!
Welcome to the start of school!
We celebrate the first day of the school year (Opening Day) with a Tie Ceremony, a treat and dance party on the Circle after school, and lots of rejoicing and reconnecting with friends old and new. Within the first two weeks of the year starting, the ACE Organizations fair allows students to entice their classmates to join a diverse range of co-curricular activities.
There’s no shortage of school spirit! In September, Spirit Week brings out friendly competition between classes and then concludes with all-school Pep Rally. Our Annual community-wide Gator Gathering is fun for the whole family. We cheer on our sports teams, play games on the Circle, and catch up with friends.
The Joy of Gumboot Dancing
Our friends from Kliptown Youth Program in South Africa returned to campus to teach Gumboot dancing to the middle school.
Arts @ Casti
Castilleja’s Arts program is robust; from instrumental to choral music, from drawing and painting to photography to ceramics, from theater to dance, our arts teachers are passionate about using art to connect, inspire, and provide joy.
Celebrating International Women's Day
At Castilleja, every day is #internationalwomensday - but we’ll take any opportunity to celebrate the incredible women we know.
Celebrating Shakespeare's Birthday
The seniors in Castilleja's AP Shakespeare Seminar organized a party during break to celebrate Shakespeare's 455th birthday. Students enjoyed cupcakes, the seniors dressed in Shakespearean costumes, and Shakespearean Mad Libs. You might have overheard some Shakesperean insults, too! Lest we forget about pinning the lips on Kenneth Branagh...
