At the Forefront of 21st Century Education
Innovation at Castilleja isn't about trends or buzzwords. We are planting the seeds of educational innovation across campus through new teaching methods, new programs, and a curriculum rich with authentic, real-world experiences. It is thoughtful work focused on creating the ideal environment for girls to engage intellectually, work collaboratively, and enjoy the thrill of discovery.
Our goal is not only to prepare students for college-level study, but also to prepare them to take on the challenges of a rapidly changing world. The skills they need--critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, analysis--are learned through an array of pedagogical practices (many informed by the particular ways girls learn), hands-on experiences, and opportunities for self-directed learning.
