Welcome to our 75th Anniversary!

Casady School’s founders envisioned a school focused on children’s intellectual growth, physical health, and spiritual formation. Small classes and personal attention from faculty cultivate the students’ intellectual life, a healthy sense of  competition improves their physical prowess, and religious instruction deepens their understanding of spiritual reality.

In September of 1947, Casady Hall opened its doors to 36 students and a faculty of four. In May of 1948, the School was renamed Casady School, and today boasts nearly 1,000 students, 180 faculty and staff, and more than 4,000 alumni worldwide. Each Cyclone, past and present, is equipped to live a life of balance, purpose, and joy.

Join us for this year of celebration as we are faithful to the past while moving bravely into the future.

Our History

As the country was emerging from the trauma of World War II, some farsighted OKC citizens, together with Bishop Thomas Casady, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, were exploring their dream to establish a diocesan center which would include a cathedral, a conference facility, and a boarding school for the city.

At the same time a group of Oklahoma City businessmen, out of concern for the quality of education available at that time in the city and recognizing the contribution of independent schools to American education, was discussing the possibility of starting a college preparatory church school in the classical tradition. Their assessment of the community’s needs focused the diocese on education. This resulted in a financially feasible plan for a school, which, in many ways, resembled from the beginning the inclusive, family-oriented and coeducational nature of Casady School today.
