Cascia Hall Preparatory School is an Augustinian Roman Catholic coeducational College-preparatory day school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is a member of the Augustinian Secondary Education Association. It is one of Tulsa's two Catholic high schools, with Bishop Kelley High School.

History[edit]

Cascia Hall was founded by the Province of Our Mother of Good Counsel, of the Order of Saint Augustine, in 1926 at its current location, a 40-acre (160,000 m2) campus at 2520 South Yorktown Avenue in midtown Tulsa.[1] The school's first headmaster was Francis A. Driscoll, who had previously been president of Villanova College (now Villanova University).[2] The school is named after St. Rita of Cascia, an Augustinian nun who lived in a monastery in Cascia, Italy in the early 15th century.

Cascia Hall was an all-male day school, which accepted boarders, until 1986. In that year, the school ceased to take boarders, added a middle school, and became a coeducational day school for grades 6-12. It has a total enrollment of about 525, about 45% of whom are Roman Catholic. Cascia Hall follows the Augustinian tradition of education, which traces its heritage to the educational philosophy of Saint Augustine of Hippo.


Athletics[edit]

The mission of the athletic department is to develop perseverance, sportsmanship, endurance, strength, coordination, self-confidence and teamwork, as well as to create a winning attitude and an appreciation of recreational habits that will last a lifetime. Sports include football, basketball, track and field, baseball, volleyball, tennis, cheerleading, cross country, swimming, wrestling, golf, lacrosse, and soccer.
