Catholic Archdiocesan School Teachers (CAST)
CAST is a graduate teacher preparation partnership program designed with the full-time Catholic school teacher in mind. This program expands your classroom training to the next level, becoming a California credentialed elementary or secondary school teacher. The CAST 1+1 model allows you to earn your Master of Arts in Transformative Education and/or your California preliminary teaching credential (Multiple or Single Subject) fully online while continuing to teach fulltime in a Catholic school.
New cohorts begin in the Summer II and Spring semesters and offers a convenient hybrid schedule that combines online synchronous and asynchronous classes on Saturdays. The credential can be completed in the first year, and the Master of Arts in Transformative Education degree in the second year. CAST candidates must be employed as full-time K-12 teachers or administrators at a Catholic school.
