It’s all about Readiness

Parents and educators know that no two children are exactly the same. Each child learns at their own pace, in their own unique way.

Traditional education ignores this fact, which means a child’s gifts and abilities are ignored and education becomes all about passing a test or meeting a grade level.

At Casas, we believe no child is better than or less than; they are all valuable, loved and created for a purpose. Our teachers give students the time, encouragement and tailored instruction they need to master skills when they are ready for them.


Readiness Means…

Meeting a child where they are spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically, academically
Helping a child understand and celebrate their unique gifts and talents
Providing opportunities for students to thrive in their gifts
Child-center, holistic support as needed

Readiness Does Not Mean…

Lowered standards and expectations
Loose curriculum
Lack of accountability


The Gradual Release Model of Responsibility is the practical application of child-centered readiness. This model empowers students, while giving teachers insight into the individual needs of each student so they can differentiate as needed to ensure individual growth.

The Gradual Release Model

We teach to the student, not to the test. This allows students who are ready for more to soar, while still providing scaffolding for those students who need support. This instructional model is unique to Casas and unlike any other school your or your child have ever attended.

Because of this approach, our students are:

  • More confident
  • Better prepared academically
  • Independent thinkers
  • Collaborative learners
  • Able to better develop their unique gifts and talents
