Cascia Hall teachers are encouraged to see themselves as not only imparting information and ideas but also as profoundly respecting their students. This respect is often expressed by the teacher’s patiently waiting for students to compare new information with their own inner dictates of truth.
Expanding new understanding then allows the student to embrace new ideas enthusiastically.
Classrooms or academic learning is not the only concern of the school’s education. Learning which takes place in social settings, on the athletic fields, during religious exercises and through social service is all part of the student’s complete education. These various learning situations foster interpersonal relationships, community building, a sense of teamwork, and a commitment to others; at the same time, these situations lead students to a realization of their responsibilities as citizens.
