Primary Division


                           Primary Division Service Learning

The Casady Service Learning Program aligns with the School mission to develop excellence, confidence, and integrity in students. Through Service Learning, it aims to empower Cyclones to realize their potential to make a difference in the community in mind, body, and spirit.

The Primary Division is Montessori-based so its Service Learning Program connects the youngest Cyclones to excellence and to Maria Montessori’s belief that “Global Peace Begins in the Classroom. 

During the Infant Crisis Services, Hope for the Holidays Drive, a Pre-Kindergarten child took the money she made during the summer in her lemonade stand and bought the largest carton of diapers she could find.” Katherine Schoeffler’19
