What is CAS?
CAS stands for Creativity, Action, Service. It is a series of experiences that broadens students' education beyond the classroom and encourages respect and concern for other people and the world.  Students must stretch themselves to develop a 50-hour project for which they have passion with the hope they will become involved in the world around them for life.

Students should review the following document - Creativity, Action, Service  - components, expectations, and activities.  Students will document their CAS involvements and projects.

Creativity-33 hours:  Should cover a wide range of arts and other activities and include creative participation by the individual student in designing and carrying out involvements at school or in the community.

Action-33 hours:  Should include physical activities, either team, group or individual, and may include training for service endeavors.

Service-33 hours:  Encompasses community and social service but may also include environmental and international projects.  

50-Hour Integrated Project:  A minimum of 50 hours must be devoted to one project of the students' choice.  The project must encompass at least 50 percent of service, and the remaining from creativity and/or action.

11th grade:  Participate in 33 hours each of Creativity, Action, and Service; develop and work on the 50-hour, in-depth community service project, pre-approved by the IB CAS Coordinator.

12th grade:  By March 1, finalize CAS activities, all completed hours, reflections, evidence, and self-evaluation.

Tutoring:  Academic tutors are needed in the SHS counseling department, particularly in the areas of world language and mathematics.  See Ms. Hall or Ms. Pierangeli for details on how to tutor fellow students after school.
