My daughter is bright and dances to the beat of a different drum. It's been a challenge to find a place that stimulates her intellectually, and at the same time gives her enough space to be a quirky character. We've found that in CaST. The classes are like fascinating dinner parties led by your favourite professor-- no death by worksheets, no work for work's sake. The idiosyncratic as well, so we found a tribe for her. R enjoys the mix of learning locations (online, in person, and off site). She especially likes the 10am start. As a small school, there aren't many clubs, but that's OK because R is not a joiner. There are only three students in her grade, so it would definitely be beneficial to have a few more.
