St. Cassian School is a great Catholic school that just won the National Blue Ribbon Award for academic excellence from the U.S. Department of Education. It's cutting edge in incorporating technology and the arts into the curriculum to make learning more fun and interesting for 21st century students.

Our child is entering his third year at St. Cassian School. We have been very pleased with the teachers and curriculum. The class size has been perfect (not too small and not too large) for our child. We are also members of the parish and love the religious education aspect of the program. The children are so respectful and thoughtful.
