Castilleja Annual Report 2022-2023

Annual Report 2022–2023


Dear Castilleja Community, In the mid-1970s, Castilleja’s Board and administration had a tough decision to make. Single-sex education had fallen out of favor and surrounding schools that had been founded to educate girls became co-ed. Despite societal, competitive, and financial headwinds, Castilleja stayed the course, reaffirming its commitment to educate motivated girls and young women in a learning environment designed specifically for them. Today, Castilleja stands alone in the Bay Area in offering a non-sectarian, 6th through 12th grade education. In the 21st century, Castilleja has expanded this commitment by working to offer this transformational education to more young girls, both by increasing enrollment and by creating a more diverse community. Thanks to your generosity, this multi-talented student body engages with world-class faculty who encourage them to stretch themselves, grasp and analyze complex concepts and issues, assert their opinions, and advocate for themselves. For over 100 years, Castilleja has been challenging assumptions about who can and should lead. Our accomplished graduates bring that ethos into the world knowing that they deserve a seat at the table and have the capability and right to chair that table. You will read about some of them in these pages. You will also see how our faculty teach leadership in the classroom each and every day. This is the experience that a Castilleja education promises, and your generosity assures that the promise is realized.

As a community, together we are passing through a period of change, but there are two constants that will always remain: we believe the world needs more women leaders, and we see the great potential to lead within every Castilleja student. With your unwavering support of Castilleja, each year you reaffirm your commitment to educating girls and young women for leadership; an objective as relevant today as it was in 1970. Knowing we have your support, we will continue to do what we do best—educate girls to become women who will effect positive change in the world. On behalf of all of our current and future students and educators, thank you for making this unique, transformative, and meaningful program possible for girls and young women with the aspiration to take their seat at the table. With deep gratitude,

Kathy Layendecker Castilleja Acting Head of School


The Importance of Stewardship A MESSAGE FROM STEPHANIE CHEN P’26 AND JAMAICA KREPS P’28 ’30 CO-CHAIRS OF THE ADVANCEMENT COMMITTEE Dear Castilleja Families and Friends, On behalf of the Castilleja Board of Trustees, we want to thank you for your support of Castilleja’s mission. We are honored to share this Annual Report with you because it reminds all of us that we are a strong, generous, and devoted community—committed to the girls who are learning on the Circle now and to the importance of girls’ education in the future. As Co-Chairs of the Advancement Committee and members of the Board of Trustees, we think a great deal about the importance of stewardship. Of course, the gifts recorded in this Annual Report represent an essential form of stewardship; our donors ensure that the institution remains financially strong, which means that the school remains agile and ready to respond to what students need to thrive and grow. We are deeply grateful to the generosity of everyone who makes this possible. We also see another level of stewardship that each and every member of the Castilleja community can embrace as we weather a season of change—which will involve both a campus modernization and a search for a new Head of School. As a community, we have a new call to become stewards of Castilleja as we contribute to the future of the school with our ideas, our resources, our time, and most of all, our enduring faith in the institution and the mission. As we continue our work this year, we are grateful to everyone who has joined us as donors and partners. We all chose Castilleja for a reason, and we all know the impact it has had on our lives and our children’s lives. Girls find their voices and develop into leaders here. They appreciate the meaning that comes from discovering a sense of purpose, and they build lifelong friendships. This is the impact that all of us will steward together. Thank you for sharing this exciting and inspiring work with us. Warmly, Stephanie Chen P’26 and Jamaica Kreps P’28 ’30 Annual Report 2022–2023 | 1

Nanci KauffmanHA Former Head of School

On the evening of May 5, 2023, Castilleja’s campus transformed into a musical festival: Castichella. The Circle was alive with the sweet sound of music, laughter, and yes,

“Since 1907, we have been making space for girls to find their voices, to be themselves, to experiment, to discover. Today we are called upon to create new spaces for girls to shine, new spaces for them to lead, and new spaces for their brilliance.”

even some rain. Students, alums, and their families celebrated the launch of the Open Their World Campaign, the largest fundraising campaign in the school’s history. At the time of the launch, $88M of the $100M goal had been raised. Some highlights from the evening included: raffles, food trucks, light-up see-saws, henna tattoos, photo booths, and prizes galore. At Castichella, we practiced the wellknown adage, “Life is about learning to dance in the rain.”

Cindy Goldberg P’17 and Ken Hirsch P’17 ’19 ’26 Campaign Co-Chairs “We are all here, able to experience this incredible institution, because of the vision and generosity of the community before us. It is now our turn. In the true Castilleja way, we come together for things that are important to our community. Let’s complete this journey together—join us to become a part of Castilleja’s history and future.”

Lisa Kay Solomon P’21 ’24 “We are using our imagination to dream of a new chapter for Castilleja that’s not just a new campus, but a new approach to creating the environments and experiences that will best support our children—and our children’s children. That’s the invitation of tonight—to collectively honor what we love most about Castilleja and to project forward our individual and collective hopes for our daughters’ futures and the futures of many more to come.”

Global Head of Infrastructure Business, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P.

I am a big believer in high-quality girls’

education and I cherish Casti as a forum in which girls can learn, grow, lead, and develop without any real or perceived societal constraints. I am thrilled for the opportunity to preserve and enhance this special place. I find it inspiring and exciting and look forward to working with the Board, staff, faculty, parents, and others to help support the students in their journey!”


Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Goodwater

Castilleja is an absolute jewel. The teachers

are truly exceptional and take the time to really understand each and every girl, equipping her for her unique journey as a future leader. I am excited for Castilleja’s next chapter as we continue to advance the mission in new ways to meet the challenges of tomorrow. The world is changing incredibly quickly and needs the voices of strong, educated, and principled young women to shape its future.”


Partner, O’Melveny & Myers LLP

I love the idea of Casti and its vision for

educating, supporting, and inspiring generations of future female leaders, artists, visionaries, and community builders. As the father of two girls, I strongly believe in the need for more female leadership in our country and in the world. For my wife and me, Casti has always been that shiny beacon on a hill in the way that it fosters a learning and social environment that brings out the best in our girls and helps them to see that anything is possible.”

6 | Castilleja School

The Board of Trustees is comprised of deeply committed community members who bring diverse expertise and foresight to the work they do supporting Castilleja’s mission now and into the future.


Senior Vice President, Menlo Equities

As someone who benefited from a Castilleja

education, I am eager to help the school move forward with the plans to modernize the learning spaces. While Casti’s history and traditions will remain, the new campus will allow both the students and the faculty to grow, learn, and create in new ways. It will be exciting to witness how the updated facilities will inspire the students to further push themselves as collaborators, innovators, and leaders.”


Partner, Gigascale Capital and Former CTO, Meta

Educating the next generation of women

leaders has never been more important. In my professional life, I have worked to create opportunities for women, so joining the Board opens another avenue for me to further this goal. I am excited about Castilleja’s new campus and I look forward to helping the school continue to build a strong foundation to thrive for another century.”


Founder and Managing Director, Elements

Casti is at an important and exciting juncture

in her hallowed journey of educating female leaders for over a century. After much hard work by so many, she has the opportunity to update her campus to lead multidisciplinary learning for her students into the next 100 years. We are at a point where fresh thinking needs to be blended with established values and thoughts. I am excited to contribute to Casti at this dynamic time in her evolution.”

Celebrating Head’s Circle Our annual Head’s Circle event was held in early September at the home of Shweta and Amish Mehta P’29. Each year, this evening honors donors who go above and beyond to give at a transformational level. Their commitment to Castilleja as a philanthropic priority expresses a deep trust in the mission of the school, and they provide a foundation that allows Castilleja to remain imaginative, innovative, and agile. The school year began with several far-reaching changes, and the evening reminded everyone of the stabilizing effect of spending time together as a community. Conversations centered around a shared commitment to educating girls to become leaders. Many past parents were in attendance, sharing how important Castilleja continues to be in their lives and in the lives of their children. Zac Zeitlin P’24, Chair of the Board of Trustees, spoke briefly to outline the Board’s vision for the future of the school, and by the end of the evening, everyone left feeling confident about the school’s direction and even more deeply committed to Castilleja. 8 | Castilleja School



What inspired you to become Acting Head? My belief in the mission of the school and the opportunity to work more closely with students, employees, and alums. Which of the 5Cs resonates most with you and why? Character because it encompasses another important C, Conscience; being guided by one’s values and striving to do what one believes is right is critical to a good life. What’s your favorite book you’ve read in the last year? The Street by Ann Petry. Favorite Casti lunch? Tomato soup, falafel, and Caesar salad. Favorite Casti tradition? There are so many meaningful traditions, but if I have to choose one, it would be the Tie Ceremony. Our school spirit is on full display and the ceremony brings our entire community together, making strong connections across grades with the tying of ties and honoring our seniors. What more could we ask for?! What do you listen to while driving to school in the morning? While driving or taking the train to Castilleja, I start with The

Economist’s daily news podcast, The Intelligence, and then quickly turn to whichever audiobook I am listening to. I recently listened to Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane, Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley, and Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver. I highly recommend all three. Tea or coffee? Definitely tea­—green or herbal. I figured that if I did not develop a coffee habit in my twenties while working around the clock as an investment banker, then it was not meant to be. How do you like to spend your free time? Hiking, reading, exercising, and taking long walks with family and friends.

“Community means a sense of shared purpose and belonging, and the trust that even when our opinions differ we remain united around our interests and values.” – KATHY LAYENDECKER

Your hero or heroine? Ever since I saw the movie and read the book Lady Sings the Blues as a teenager, my heroine has been Billie Holiday. She persevered in the most challenging circumstances and left us with important musical, cultural, and social justice legacies.

What is an accomplishment you are proud of? Partnering with my husband Glenn to raise our amazing daughters Katie (30) and Brooke (28).

Your favorite subject in school? I was always strong in and enjoyed math, but my true passion was studying and analyzing literature.

Something you plan to learn more about in the next year? How to balance content and skill acquisition in Castilleja’s academic program, to play the fiddle, and to speak Croatian.

What does community mean to you? A sense of shared purpose and belonging, and the trust that even when our opinions differ, we remain united around our interests and values.

Your superpower? Meeting people where they are. Annual Report 2022–2023 | 9

Sixty-two remarkable girls said yes to joining the Castilleja Class of 2030! This delightful group speaks 13 different languages at home. The girls come from 39 distinct schools and 17 towns across the Peninsula, but they are already united in a desire to make an impact, find joy, and share their talents with one another. We know that together, they will help us shape a beautiful future.

Leadership in the Classroom Leadership Competencies With a mission to educate women leaders, Castilleja has always been thoughtful about how to teach leadership. In the fall of 2013, the faculty began a formal process of defining essential skills that women leaders would need to be able to thrive in a rapidly changing world. The Learning and Leading Competencies— Curiosity, Purposeful Reflection, Embracing Ambiguity, Problem Strategizing, Empathy, and Collaboration—took shape and have become central to our program ever since. Ten years later, our teachers are helping our students practice these competencies in the classroom every day.

CURIOSITY Actively seeking and exploring new and original questions and answers about the world. PURPOSEFUL REFLECTION Regularly reflecting on a learning experience including assessing personal contributions and areas for improvement. Being conscious of personal lack of knowledge, concerns, and socially constructed beliefs. EMBRACING AMBIGUITY Engaging in new, different, and challenging situations with the exciting potential to learn something new. PROBLEM STRATEGIZING Identifying multiple facets of a problem or challenge, examining it through various lenses (ethical, cultural, social, political, racial, economic, etc.), and prioritizing key aspects on which to focus. EMPATHY Developing connections and relationships with others who have different experiences and perspectives while remaining open to learning about their ideas and suggestions. Understanding that personal problems are connected to larger issues with many interrelated parts, and that contradictory beliefs, ideas, and actions can all be valid. COLLABORATION Taking responsibility to ensure everyone feels comfortable while working on a group task, including setting expectations and practicing strategies to navigate disagreements or discomfort that inevitably arise in a group setting.

12 | Castilleja School

UPPER SCHOOL ENGLISH: PURPOSEFUL REFLECTION At the beginning of each 11th grade English class, Matt Callahan has students set writing goals, such as fusing analysis and poetry, playing with structure, or identifying themes they’re passionate about. Reflection is built into his class, from rubrics to one-on-one meetings with students. “I see my role less as a teacher and more as a gardener. I prune the tree so the soil can get more sun. I clear the ground a little bit,” explains Mr. Callahan. “I know how to ask the right questions and I encourage them to take a risk with their writing. And if they care about it, they work harder at it.”

MIDDLE SCHOOL ENGLISH: EMBRACING AMBIGUITY English teacher Jasmin Miller uses the Harkness method with her 7th graders to discuss reading assignments. Sitting at a round table, students get to respond in real time to other people’s comments and embrace the ambiguity of a live conversation. (No raised hands allowed!) They must also refer to the text to support their claims whenever possible. “They’re looking at people who are talking to find an entry point into the conversation,” says Dr. Miller. “Scholarship is being a part of a conversation, and socially, you have to learn how to listen and you have to learn how to speak.”

Annual Report 2022–2023 | 13

UPPER SCHOOL ADVANCED TOPICS RESEARCH & WRITING: EMPATHY For Christy StoryHA, empathy is the backbone of her senior-level class, Advanced Topics Research & Writing. Dr. Story not only teaches students to place people within their historical contexts and to value multiple perspectives, she also builds a “critical friend circle” by training students to present and critique each other’s projects. “The guiding principle is always be nice, be specific, help each other, and participate,” says Dr. Story. “By having a process that is expected and scaffolded, students learn the skill and practice it. All leaders need to know how to solicit feedback, how to receive feedback, and how to give it.”

MIDDLE AND UPPER SCHOOL WORLD LANGUAGE: EMPATHY When you learn a new language, you become empathetic, says Hwai Lin, Castilleja’s Mandarin teacher who is also fluent in Arabic and Japanese. “It’s about talking to people directly and understanding their stories.” For one assignment, Ms. Lin’s Upper School Advanced Topics Language and Culture class interviews a Taiwanese college student about Taiwan’s education system. As they chat across a 15hour divide over Zoom, they also discuss pop culture and hobbies (and the occasional lack of sleep). “They really want to know what life is like outside of their bubble,” says Ms. Lin. “Students learn to appreciate diversity. And within that diversity, there is still similarity.”

MIDDLE SCHOOL HISTORY: PROBLEM STRATEGIZING Heather Pang ’84HA has her 8th graders tackle a major history research project for National History Day. Students pick a topic and figure out the most fitting presentation format, be it a performance, a podcast, a documentary, a website, a research paper, or an exhibit. Instructional & Programming Librarian Tasha Bergson-MichelsonHA comes in to help guide their research. “Because they’ve chosen their own topics, they have a level of curiosity that is much higher than when I pick topics,” says Dr. Pang. “They become experts. Having a chance to be historians rather than just consume and discuss history—to me, that is leadership.” 14 | Castilleja School

UPPER SCHOOL SCIENCE: COLLABORATION Elaine MiddlemanHA uses a flipped classroom model in her junior-level biology honors class. This approach teaches students to be collaborative leaders rather than passive listeners. Students watch video lectures at home. Then, in class and in lab, they work in groups to explain material to each other and apply what they learned. “They are helping each other with deeper learning when they’re discussing and trying to explain the concepts to each other,” says Dr. Middleman. “They’re so eager to learn. It’s pretty aweinspiring, all the things that they want to do and can do.”

MIDDLE SCHOOL HISTORY: PROBLEM STRATEGIZING “When I think about female leadership, I think of fostering a culture of inclusivity, where diverse experiences are not only welcomed, but celebrated,” says Middle School history teacher Chrislaine Miller. One of Dr. Miller’s classroom activities is a UN project, where her 6th graders learn about addressing the challenges outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals through research, debate, and negotiation. “They’re learning to compromise, to get along with others who may or may not agree with them. If we give students opportunities to engage in diplomacy and international relations, they will rise to the occasion,” says Dr. Miller. “That inspires me. I want to know all my students. I want to hear their ideas.”

UPPER SCHOOL MATH: CURIOSITY Students in Rachel Tucker’s statistics class develop curiosity and empathy by posing a question about a real-world issue, then answering it with the help of research, histograms, and scatter plots. To start, students find a dataset with over 1,000 data points on their chosen topic, be it sports team performance, COVID response, or homelessness. “They get to pick something that they’re curious about and dig into it,” explains Ms. Tucker. “Maybe it looks significant when you're graphing it, but when you do statistical analysis, it turns out to be not significant. It teaches students the messiness of real-world data.”

Finding Fulfillment in Mentorship ANNA MIRABELLA ’12 RETURNS AS A MENTOR TO THE PROGRAM THAT MOST INSPIRED HER: THE ROBOTICS TEAM When Anna Mirabella ’12 began mentoring the Gatorbotics team in 2022, one of her immediate thoughts was, “We were like this too.” The team today may use different tools and technologies than 15 years ago, but the enthusiasm and motivation of the students is exactly the same. She had been considering mentoring the Gatorbotics team for a while, but after joining their kickoff meeting last fall, she recognized, “The team’s desire to solve problems was contaigious, and I knew I wanted to be part of that environment again,” she says. She finally committed to carving out time to give back to a place and a program that shaped her. It’s in the robotics space that Anna began to develop her voice and her path, so naturally, sharing this same gift with current students is truly a full circle moment, as we like to say. A four-year member of the Gatorbotics team, Anna recounts that exposure to hands-on technical experience and to industry mentors significantly impacted her decision to study mechanical engineering in college. Further, her time as team captain taught her valuable leadership lessons that she continues to utilize in her current role as a program manager. REFLECTING AND GIVING When it was time to consider career paths, Anna identified trends in the kinds of roles she played in classroom and extracurricular group projects: “I realized that I had built foundational skills at Castilleja that I could employ in a job, too.” As she contemplated her next steps, another thought crossed her mind. Anna’s college sorority helped re-emphasize the value of philanthropy and how contributing financial resources in conjunction with volunteer time can maximize impact. A spark ignited in Anna. She wanted to start contributing. Upon graduating from college, Anna asked herself where she wanted to make an impact. She began donating to Castilleja’s robotics team, noting that as a student, she always valued having access to new tools. 24 | Castilleja School

“Even giving back in small ways can make a difference and maintain connection to community.” — ANNA MIRABELLA ’12

Now that she was in a position to give back, she wanted to help students develop skills in new areas, just like she had. “Even giving back in small ways can make a difference and maintain connection to community,” she observes. For Anna, it has been equally rewarding to invest her time, especially when doing so is encouraged and supported by an employer. “I would encourage alums to see if their company matches donations in order to maximize dollars or time,” Anna shared. MUTUAL MENTORSHIP One recent afternoon in the Bourn Lab, Anna stumbled upon the robot her team had built a decade ago. Excited by this discovery, Anna reached out to her former team and mentor about the memories that came flooding back to her. The connection was reignited as if time stood still. Anna shared that mentoring taught her new skills she’s been able to bring back to her workplace. Perhaps it is unsurprising that once you become a learner and a leader, you will embody those attributes throughout your journey and empower others to do the same.


Giving What You Can, When You Can AS ONE OF THE YOUNGEST MEMBERS OF THE DECADES CLUB, SARAH ROSSTON ’12 PROVES THAT INCREMENTAL GIVING CAN HAVE A BIG IMPACT OVER TIME When asked about a pivotal moment in high school that influenced their life’s trajectory, Castilleja alums often launch into an animated story about their favorite classes or teachers. Sarah Rosston ’12 takes another approach. For her, the Bourn Lab and the Gatorbotics program have been formative, both personally and professionally. “I started at Castilleja as a quiet and shy person,” Sarah remembers. “It was through my time in Gatorbotics that I learned to have the confidence to reach out and ask for opportunities.” Advocating for oneself and for others is woven into the fabric of Castilleja. Sarah recalls numerous times when mentors in the classroom and in the Bourn Lab were there for her. “During my senior year, I asked the Gatorbotics mentors to show me what code was,” says Sarah, who particularly loved the real-world applications of probability and math modeling, taught by Dr. LowellHA. LEARNING LEADERSHIP While on the Gatorbotics team, Sarah led the build team with Aneesha Gupta ’13. Together they learned a valuable leadership skill: mentorship. “When younger students joined the team, few had technical experience, so creating a comfortable environment to enable their growth was really important,” explains Sarah. These formative experiences led Sarah to pursue a career in computer science and software engineering after graduation. As she grew professionally, Sarah always made giving back a priority. She continued working with high school students while in college, where she led programs through “Girls Teaching Girls Code.” Supporting and mentoring members of her community is a skill that Sarah still utilizes daily in her professional life. “If you benefit from a place, think about how you can support that institution,” she recommends. It’s a philosophy passed down from her parents, who advised her that small

amounts of support, given consistently over time, can make an impact. Sarah realizes that giving back looks different for everyone, and it depends on what you're capable of giving at the time. “If your means improve over time, the gift can grow.” This has been true for Sarah; after graduation her gifts were smaller and they have been growing ever since. She is one of the youngest members of the Decades Club, and she gives to tuition assistance every year, making this education that shaped her life possible for other students.

“If you benefit from a place, think about how you can support that institution.” — SARAH ROSSTON ’12

THE IMPACT OF GIVING At Reunion in 2022, Sarah was delighted to discover that her favorite place on campus, the Bourn Lab, has grown since she graduated, in many ways thanks to the impact of thoughtful gifts from alums. “I felt inspired by what Castilleja students continue to imagine and create,” says Sarah about the Bourn Lab and the way it builds student confidence, curiosity, and community from one grade to the next. “The impact is still there.”

Annual Report 2022–2023 | 25

This year’s event took place on March 25, 2023, at the Computer History Museum, and speakers Nina Davuluri, activist, actress, and the first South Asian Miss America, and Jimmy Chin, photographer, videographer, and mountaineer, both regaled the audience with stories of imagination, creativity, and perseverance. Ms. Davuluri was interviewed by journalist Aarti Shahani, host of Art of Power, and Mr. Chin was interviewed by Lynne Twist, President and Founder of Soul of Money Institute and Co-Founder of Pachamama Alliance. Cirque du Soleil and Dear San Francisco artist Bradley Henderson stunned the audience with his Cyr wheel act. Both Ms. Davuluri and Mr. Chin reflected on the fact that access to education was always a core value throughout their childhoods To their families, education was a pathway to opportunity. In many ways, their stories mirror our own: we know that there is tremendous potential in what a single human spirit can accomplish. With the right tools, such as education, there is no limit to what we can imagine for ourselves and for our community. View360, with its mission of supporting equity in education, is one avenue for expanding a child’s access to life-long imagination. This year’s event raised $1.6 million, enabling Castilleja to deliver on its commitment to advancing socioeconomic diversity and creating a learning environment where every student brings a unique perspective.

SAVE THE DATE! We can't wait to see you at next year’s View360 during Spring 2024.

2023 Alumnae Induction Lunch


Sharing Sisterhood As students embark upon their final weeks as students at Castilleja, there are multiple opportunities for reflecting and celebrating. Conversations abound regarding how the class wishes to mark its legacy. In years past, the senior class gift often took the form of a tangible object on campus, such as a new bench for students to enjoy or a water bottle filling station in the gym. Most recently, however, there has been a marked shift to supporting equity in education; graduates increasingly wish to designate their gift to Tuition Assistance. Class Representatives Ella Holsinger ’23 and Yonu Oh ’23 led the process for this year’s senior gift. The class had debated donating a physical gift, but ultimately, the graduates wanted their contribution to have longevity beyond a physical object. Yonu explains, “We wanted to share the sisterhood that Castilleja had granted us through its silly traditions, lunchtime debates, and lifelong friendship; ultimately we wanted to share the youth that Castilleja gave us.” Many alums will nod their heads in agreement, thinking about their own lunchtime conversations around the Circle as core memories with classmates. This is one reason why at Castilleja, giving back is rarely done in silo; some experiences are quintessential across generations and stand the test of time. For Kristin Bell ’95, this was certainly the case. When the Class of 2023 reached 50% participation, Kristin sent the class a video in which she described the role

Ella Holsinger ’23 and Yonu Oh ’23 tuition assistance played in her life. “The education I got at Castilleja is one of the most treasured memories I have. Tuition Assistance was how I was able to live on campus and have the opportunities to really learn about women learning and women leading. I was proud to be a recipient of Tuition Assistance and have access to a top-tier education,” Kristin stated. Now a member of the Alumnae Executive Committee, Kristin has generously given back to a community that meant so much to her. Whether through volunteering time or supporting the institution financially, there are multiple ways alums engage with Castilleja’s current and future students. There is a desire to propel the next generation forward and ensure that the experience of laughing and learning around the Circle can always be offered to more students. Gifts bestowed to Castilleja and designated to Tuition Assistance demonstrate a deep commitment to equity in education. With the Circle as a unifying element, anything is possible when Castilleja students and graduates invest in one another. Annual Report 2022–2023 | 45


Decade Club Founded in July 2012, the Decade Club recognizes members of the Castilleja community who have made gifts for 10 to 19 consecutive years.
