St. Casimir School is a Certified Sustainable Green School. In 2008 we were recipients of the 2008 Maryland Green School Award for outstanding natural resource, environmental and conservation education, community involvement, and practices. Through the re-accreditation process we are now certified sustainable.
We are located at 1035 S. Kenwood Avenue in the heart of Canton near Boston and O'Donnell Streets. Our school is easily accessed from both Interstate 95 and downtown Baltimore. We not only have many families from our immediate community, we also have many families from the suburbs who work in Baltimore and find SCCS to be the best choice for their child. We have before and after-care. Transportation to and from school is provided by parents.
Positive School Environment
To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.
Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
St. Casimir School has been recognized with the Bronze Award for PBIS.
St. Casimir School is fully accredited by by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). Founded in 1895, SACS CASI accredits schools and school systems throughout the United States and overseas. SACS CASI is an accreditation division of AdvancED. AdvancED is also the parent organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the National Study of School Evaluation (NSSE).
All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through AdvancED. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates with a visit by an AdvancED External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
