Casti is... Intellectual Utopia
Castilleja's academic and co-curricular programs reflect our mission. Our program combines a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum with opportunities for interdisciplinary study, hands-on learning, leadership, and global engagement. A robust array of other activities including clubs, sports teams, retreats, and advisories complement the academic program in all grades.
Middle School: Our content rich academic program includes an emphasis on the skills for learning: organization, time management, and study skills. A blend of traditional and innovative approaches appeals to a wide range of interests and allows girls to develop their talents in and out of the classroom. Girls learn in an exceptional environment taught by skilled teachers who encourage their growing independence and inspire them to continue a love of learning.
Upper School: Our rigorous, academic curriculum prepares girls not only for success in college but also for a life of learning, leading, and doing. The excellence of the curriculum is a direct reflection of the school's excellent faculty, who are deeply committed to both their subject matter and their students. Upper level coursework includes an array of electives and Advanced Placement courses, which build on the core courses of the ninth and tenth grades. Academic life is complemented by activities including community action, senior talks, and global programs.
