Cascades Academy in Bend, Oregon has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic planning during the 2017-18 academic year. Our work will commence in the late spring as we begin our data collection process. We welcome Cascades Academy to the ISA client community.
Cascades Academy is an engaged, vibrant community that weaves challenging academics with experiential learning to inspire socially responsible individuals ready for a diverse and changing world. The school was founded in 2003 in order to fulfill the need for an independent, PK-12 college preparatory school in Central Oregon. The school opened its doors on Studio Road in mid-town Bend with 61 students, moved to a 21-acre campus in Tumalo in 2013, and now has capacity for 225 students. Cascades Academy offers a challenging academic curriculum that integrates experiential learning, outdoor education, fine arts, and service learning. Small class sizes of 18 students allow teachers to discover every student's unique potential - finding the right balance of challenge and support to help each student excel in a caring and dynamic community.
