Central to our mission is creating learning opportunities for students to develop their character, nurture their interests and talents, and promote active and global citizenship. The co-curricular program offers learning experiences that complement, in many ways, what students are learning in their coursework. We offer a multitude of activities ranging from sports, the creative arts, to life skills and other academic-related clubs. The program is offered during school hours to allow all students to participate in an activity of their choice.
CAS is a three lettered abbreviation for long hours of commitment. That very commitment is, however, a valuable asset to have in university. Creativity hours proved to be useful in multiple seminars I have led in my upper year courses. Action hours allowed me to take on athletic roles, as an outlet from the stressors of a full course load! Lastly, service hours exposed me to the various medical and socioeconomic privileges other communities possess and thus, CAS helped me narrow down what I would like to accomplish in terms of further studies and career.
