Monte Cassino School
Bishop Francis Kelley asked the Sisters of St. Joseph Monastery to start a school in Tulsa in order to meet the needs of the growing Oklahoma community. In 1926, the Sisters opened Monte Cassino School, a boarding school for girls from kindergarten to 12th grade.
Today, Monte Cassino School teaches children from pre-school through the eighth grade. Still on its original location at 21st and Lewis, the Monte Cassino campus includes three buildings: the elementary school, the middle school and the newly constructed Early Childhood Learning Center. Many of the Sisters of Saint Joseph Monastery are actively involved in the school.
Monte Cassino continues to be at the edge of academic excellence and has won numerous awards. In addition, the school has many sports and academic championships. Monte Cassino utilizes cutting-edge technology that includes interactive whiteboards in classrooms, and a tablet PC program for middle school students.
