We encourage all our students to develop well-roundedness and overall wellness through the three pillars of CAS.
Creativity | exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance
Activity | physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle
Service | collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need
Each student at BAHS is expected to complete at least one experience/commitment to each pillar of CAS each year they attend BAHS. Database of CAS Examples
Students explore and share their CAS experiences through their homerooms. Homeroom teachers keep record of CAS commitments. CAS Evaluation Form
The seven learning outcomes of each CAS experience are:
The student identified their strengths and areas for growth.
The student undertook challenges, developing new skills in the process.
The student initiated and planned this activity.
The student showed commitment and perseverance.
The student demonstrated the skills and recognized the benefits of working collaboratively
The student demonstrated engagement with issues of global significance.
The student recognized and considered the ethics of their choices and actions.
The specifics, goals and time requirements of each CAS commitment vary. A team of five (Student, Parent, Mentor, Advisor and Coordinator) determine/define and guide each experience collaboratively.
In addition to the student and parent, the CAS Advisor is the homeroom teacher. The Mentor/Supervisor is usually a coach, director, club advisor or project coordinator. The CAS Coordinators are the BAHS Year-Level Leaders and Administration.
