Mrs. Maria Llanes, Principal

 Dear Prospective School Families and Friends of St. Cassian School, 

         Welcome to our website! I hope you enjoy reading about our beautiful school and gain knowledge of how our school provides a nurturing and wonderful educational experience for its students. 

            Our administration and staff believe that it is through St. Cassian School’s unique approach to instruction that we maximize learning for our students.  As a result, our students perform academically in the top fifteen percent nation-wide.  Our unique approach follows a gifted and talented design with a focus on integrating the arts, technology and our Catholic faith into the academic program. This is accomplished primarily through a S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) curriculum approach, and by addressing the multiple intelligences of our students.  The integrated approach creates multi-dimensional learning experiences that ensure our students thrive and achieve academic success.

         In addressing our commitment to provide unique learning opportunities, we continually:

  • Offer an array of exciting programs through our MIAD (Multiple Intelligence Arts Domain) Elective Program
  • Offer new after school STEM enrichment courses in robotics and engineering, in addition to our wonderful sports and dance programs
  • Invite experts from different professions to work with our students through our Scholars–in-Residence Program. Our partners include:

            o   The New Jersey Bar Association

            o   The New Jersey State House (Mini Model Congress Program)

            o   Center for Civic Education (Project Citizen)

            o   Liberty Science Center

            o   Classroom Inc. Technology

            o   The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

            o   American Ballroom Theater Company

            o   Bergen Performing Arts Center

            o   Carnegie Hall Music Education

            o   New Jersey Performing Arts Center

            o   Xylem Water Technology Company

            o   New York Presbyterian Hospital

         With the support of the St. Cassian School Foundation, I am also delighted to report that St. Cassian School employs new, innovative, research-based curriculum programs and resources:

  •  In addition to paper copies of the newest textbook editions, online student subscriptions ae provided
  • Classworks, a technology assisted program that provides an individualized learning plan for each student
  • One to one deployment of ipads (pre-k to gr.1) or chrome books  ( gr.2  to gr. 8) at all grade levels.

We place the safety of our students and staff as a top priority and have enhanced procedures to promote a secure environment through:

  • Security cameras that cover the exterior grounds and all common areas of the interior of the building, including hallways, stairways, school entry points and classrooms.
  • Custom design classroom doors and locks offering maximum protection against fire and forced entry
  • Staff photo ID key cards, which act as a key for easy building entry and also make the identification of staff by emergency responders easier and more effective

       In closing, I want to thank you for visiting our school website.  If you have not done so already, I encourage you to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus. 

Yours in education and faith,

Mrs. Maria Llanes
