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. The school states that its mission is to prepare students for college and life through a challenging academic program and focus on the core values of "Truth, Unity, and Love" (Veritas, Unitas, and Caritas).[1] The school states that one hundred percent of its seniors matriculate to college following graduation. Cascia Hall is accredited by the State of Oklahoma and AdvancedEd and is in good standing with the National Catholic Education Association.
