About CaST School

Welcome to CaST School

CaST School has come into being due to the philanthropic acts of a small group of committed educators, students, and their families. Its continued existence is dependent on that same commitment multiplied by the generosity of others.

Co-founders: STEPHANIE BUSHNIK, VANESSA ALSOP, KELVIN SEALEY

In the last fifty years, scholars have examined who began witnessing unique mergers of business activities with charitable or foundation-based social missions. Small and large non-profits found themselves engaging in business practices that helped them realize their tasks. At the same time, corporations that adopted social missions learned that those missions could be funded within the same commercial frameworks in which profits were derived. Companies like Newman’s Own, Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, Fair Trade coffee beans, Housing Works, second-hand clothing shops, and multiple contemporary entrepreneurs have used their knowledge and access to resources to support a so-called “double bottom line”: social benefit and commercial profit.

CaST Social Enterprise Fund will do the same, working with CaST students, teachers, families, and the CaST Friends and Scholars Club network to build, support social enterprises that we control, and join the commercial practice with social good: mission-driven enterprise. Should you have ideas on this topic or are open to engaging in social enterprise activities given your skill set and state of mind, you are welcome to contact the CaST principal about your opinions.

Experiential Education

Integrating common curricular knowledge with place-based learning allows young people to know how humanity benefits from studying these cases. Experiential education is the beating heart of the CaST School curriculum. Students learn to interrogate the world's complexity while being in the world, honing critical thinking skills vital to becoming global citizens.

Global Ecology

CaST School is facing a global climate emergency.
CaST’s curriculum is sensitive to the need to work with younger generations to confront the current climate crisis and the ramifications for human, animal, and plant life that will unfold in the coming century and beyond.
