Welcome

The residents in our housing come from many different countries and diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Living together in such a community, our students and their families learn what it means to be good neighbors to one another. CST believes that living in such a diverse and multicultural community contributes to an education that prepares its students to Create a Difference For the World We Live In.
