Upper Division

                         Upper Division Service Learning

The Casady Service Learning Program aligns with the School's mission to develop excellence, confidence, and integrity in students and inspire them to realize their potential to make a difference in their community in mind, body, and spirit.

The Upper Division promotes a service-oriented life, with the intention of yielding joy and peace for the participants. The challenge is to maximize potential and make a difference in local and global communities. The charge is to learn, give, grow, transform. The 45-hour service requirement is intended to align a student’s heart, mind, spirit, and actions. The Upper Division faculty employs service initiatives through personal initiatives, academic curriculum, Student Council, and clubs.

Please see Upper Division requirements for graduation.

            “I believe that participating in service learning not only benefits our community but also broadens a student's outlook on life.  Service Learning has given me so many opportunities to change my school, my community, and finally my world.  Projects like Challenge 20/20 help Casady students become connected to schools across the world and discuss local problems in a global setting.  The Casady Cans Do project has raised awareness and collected funds to help eradicate hunger in Oklahoma.  No matter what your passion is, you can find a service learning project that is right for you.”
