Welcome to C.A.S.IT. Welcome to Italy.
In 1995, Centro Attività Scolastiche Italiane (C.A.S.IT., Inc.), as proposed by the Italian Consulate General in Boston, was formed as a non-profit educational and professional organization, for the promotion of Italian language and culture in the public and private schools of New England.
Our Mission is to assist communities that wish to introduce, preserve, rejuvenate or broaden the study of the Italian language in their schools. CASIT offers grants of varying amounts for the establishment of Italian language and cultural programs with the ultimate purpose to institute Italian as a subject in the school curriculum.

The camp is a great opportunity for students to be exposed early to a foreign language and get them excited about language learning. There are many benefits that learning a foreign language provides, from experiencing new cultures to gaining the skills needed to succeed in today’s world. The camp will be full of fun activities that will prove to be a blast for all children!
