Connecting Adults and Students to Achieve

As part of implementing Cretin-Derham Hall’s Strategic Plan, Connecting Adults and Students to Achieve (CASA) was designed to make connections and create a stronger community.  Through “family gatherings,” students and adults develop relationships that can support social, emotional, spiritual and academic needs. Every student and almost every adult in the building are involved in this program.

Learn about CASA

Our CASA program is administered by two Coordinators, who oversee the House Directors and coordinate the agenda,activities and focus for each meeting.

CASA is structured with 8 Houses (Faith, Courage,Truth, Wisdom, Peace, Hope, Mercy and Joy) each made up of about 8 families. Each family consists of 2 adults and about 20 students. Families meet weekly and engage in games and activities aimed at fostering stronger connections between family members. Houses meet about once a year. Every student and almost every adult in the building take part in the weekly family meetings.
