Casady School's Mission
Casady School develops excellence, confidence, and integrity in students and prepares them with the skills and knowledge that serve as the foundation for success.

Entrepreneurs of Peace and Social Change
Through the Casady Service Learning Department, students strive to make a difference in the community.

Goals of Service Learning
  • Motivate students to develop ongoing relationships with people of all ages and ethnicities.
  • Connect learning to community problem solving.
  • Foster collaborative relationships to solve need.

Primary Division
Students are introduced to service through intentional activities connected to the Montessori curriculum. Students celebrate International Day of Peace, participate in the Casady Canned Food Drive, and enjoy grade level opportunities to visit the elderly gifting them with artwork and songs.

Lower Division
Students in the Lower Division may choose to become a member of the Lower Division Service Club. In the club children learn about promoting peace, hunger and the Casady Canned Food Drive, and have opportunities to make connections with elderly citizens in The Village community. There are also grade level project-based service experiences such as the third grade "Soup Kitchen Project."
This project connects the book, Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Creech, to a service outreach project for the Homeless Alliance Day Shelter.

Middle Division
Students in grades five and six participate in service learning activities as directed by their teachers. Additionally, seventh and eighth grade students are required to engage in SEE (Service Enrichment Education) periods unless excused by administration. All MD students are also eligible to take part in MD Service Learning Club activities throughout the year.

Upper Division
Due to COVID-19 Casady School will not require SL hours for students in Upper Division for the 2020-2021 school year. The service graduation requirement of 45 hours will resume for the 2021-2022 academic year. Transfer students entering Casady their sophomore year are required to serve 30 hours. Transfer students enrolled at Casady for one or two years are required to serve 15 hours. Upper Division students are responsible for establishing and maintaining their own service logs on MobileServe. More information and resources for MobileServe are found on the Mobile Serve page.
