Middle Division

Spiritual Formation

Middle Division students study the Old and New Testaments, the five major world religions, and continue the tradition of attending daily Chapel.
The Middle Division religion curriculum is a chronological survey of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, referred to in the Christian tradition as the Old and New Testaments. We value the religious diversity of our families and teach the Bible first
from a socio-literary point of view, but give careful attention to how religious texts are interpreted and used devotionally.
  • 5th Graders do a careful reading of the book of Genesis.
  • 6th Graders read through the Exodus, the Wilderness, and the Conquest of Canaan.
  • 7th Graders study the 10th Century United Monarchy, Babylonian Captivity and the Prophets.
  • 8th Graders grapple with the emergence of Christianity out of Judaism
Our religion curriculum, integrated with the overview of the five major world religions presented in our history curriculum, combined with the wide range of Chapel speakers each day, gives Casady students a foundation for understanding
religious cultures of the 21st century. Middle Division also cultivates compassion through Service Learning Club,
International Club, and our School Houses have good nature competitions for worthy causes, both locally and across the globe.

Daily Chapel Service

Casady School is an academic institution that has long been rooted in the Christian faith tradition. Our faith is primarily expressed through the sacraments, liturgy, and traditions of our Episcopal identity. While our foundation is solidly Christian, we welcome students of many different faith traditions.

Each day St. Edward's Chapel fills with students and faculty for a time of spiritual refreshment, prayer and worship. Daily Chapel consists of an abbreviated, yet spirit-filled, prayer service from the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer. During the service, students participate in a variety of ways; much of the participation is found within the singing of hymns, praying, interacting with daily scripture readings and listening to a "Chapel talk.”

The “Chapel talk” – usually done by the chaplains, students or guests from the larger Oklahoma City community – provides a special opportunity for our students to learn values of faith, hope and love. Music, creativity, and media often provide the platforms through which these values are expressed by the speakers. The ultimate hope for our students' Chapel experience is that they will not only realize their value as children of God, but also take the values learned within the confines of this Holy place and share them with the world.
Casady School is an independent, co-educational, college preparatory, Episcopal day school serving students in pre-k-12. Educating Mind, Body, and Spirit.
