Casady School Promotional Videos Focus on Six Core Messages
This year, Casady School is focused on communicating six core messages through its advertising, marketing, and recruitment. These messages succinctly describe the focus of the School's mission to develop excellence, confidence, and integrity in students. The six core messages were developed after a series of interviews with Casady faculty and staff and parents during research for the School's branding campaign.
Seven impressive and heartwarming videos have been produced to showcase the School's six core messages in our Casady Community. The full video can be seen on the CasadySchoolLife YouTube channel:

Casady's six core messages are:
Educating in Mind, Body, Spirit: Casady’s holistic approach to education leads students to pursue a diverse range of interests, inspiring academic, athletic, artistic, and spiritual growth.
Building Character: In the classroom and in Chapel, Casady teaches ethical decision-making, reinforces virtuous behaviors, and develops compassionate individuals who make a difference.
Outstanding Academics: Casady is a college preparatory Episcopal day school with high academic standards that develop critical and creative thinking skills. Casady School’s curriculum is college-preparatory throughout; every course develops in students the critical and creative thinking skills that will serve students well in college and beyond.
Cultivating Individuality: The indivudal student. Casady educators know each student as an individual and can therefore focus on each student’s unique strengths, encourage academic growth, and guide each student to pursue his or her passions.
Supporting Family: In Casady’s Community, adults work together to watch over the students as they explore their interests, accept and meet challenges, and reach their full potential.
Honoring Tradition: One mission since 1947. Casady School develops excellence, confidence, and integrity in students and equips them with the skills and knowledge that serve as the foundation for success.
The six core messages have also been carried through ads that have appeared in The Journal Record print and online versions, The Oklahoman print and online versions, OKC Friday, Celebrity Attractions program, Territory, 405 (formerly Slice), as well as online banner ads on numerous websites. Casady's new website, which will be rolled out at the first of March, will also incorporate the six core messages in its design.
This month, we will begin to share all seven videos on the website, through social media, Division Notes, and again through the Courier and Alumni Connections enewsletters. We hope that you will share these videos with your friends, family, and any prospective families you think would enjoy becoming a part of our Casady Community.
