Principles That Guide CASONY
- Middle school can be a critical launch pad for students if they are exposed to the professionals and industries who are developing the careers of the future.
- Students must be exposed to the possibilities presented by STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and must be given the opportunity to explore and understand them.
- All children should be taught how to think critically and solve problems, while making a difference through their career choices.
- No student should be handicapped by a lack of exposure to opportunities whether at home or in their communities.
