CAST Teach High School

Transforming Education. Transforming Our Community


What we do


CAST Teach High School will open in August 2022 on the campus of Stevens High School and is San Antonio’s first school dedicated to careers in education. Cast Teach is created in partnership with Northside ISD, the CAST Schools Network, and the University of Texas at San Antonio’s College of Education and Human Development.

With the support of all three organizations, the school will rally multiple industries to create future educators that will transform our community. The school will work alongside students and families to identify and nurture their passions, while providing them with key skills relevant to careers in education, such as: teaching, counseling, library studies, and coaching.
