Casady’s Service Learning Program continues the School’s mission to develop excellence, confidence, and integrity in students, and through Service Learning, it empowers them to realize their potential to make a difference in the community. Service is a path to peace and joy. Casady’s Director of Service Learning and her office are resources to encourage students, faculty, parents, and staff to explore volunteer experiences. “Like a pebble, each small act of service could collectively add to a path to peace.” Shinnyo-en Foundation, Infinite Paths to Peace
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 2016, 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
