HistoryEdit

Cascia Hall was founded by the Province of Our Mother of Good Counsel, of the Order of Saint Augustine, in 1926 at its current location, a 40-acre (160,000 m2) campus at 2520 South Yorktown Avenue in midtown Tulsa.[1] The school's first headmaster was Francis A. Driscoll, who had previously been president of Villanova College (now Villanova University).[2] The school is named after St. Rita of Cascia, an Augustinian nun who lived in a monastery in Cascia, Italy in the early 15th century.

Cascia Hall was an all-male day school, which accepted boarders, until 1986. In that year, the school ceased to take boarders, added a middle school, and became a coeducational day school for grades 6-12. It has a total enrollment of about 525, about 45% of whom are Roman Catholic. Cascia Hall follows the Augustinian tradition of education, which traces its heritage to the educational philosophy of Saint Augustine of Hippo.
