Cascia Hall Preparatory School was established by the Augustinians as a Catholic school for boys in 1926 by Francis Driscoll in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the request of Bishop Francis Kelley. It is accredited by the North Central Association.

Notable alumni include former Governor of Oklahoma Frank Keating, former Mayors of Tulsa Robert LaFortune and Bill LaFortune, and Bill Hader, cast member of Saturday Night Live. In addition, Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith's first head coaching job was at Cascia.

Student Enrollment is approximately 600. The school is one of four Catholic high schools in Oklahoma, the other three being Bishop Kelley, also located in Tulsa, Mount St. Mary's and Bishop McGuinness are located in Oklahoma City. The two Tulsa schools often conduct spiritual programs, such as retreats (namely Kairos), together.

Cascia Hall prides itself on academic excellence and athletic superiority, of which National Merit Finalists and state championships result. In 2007, Cascia Hall had six National Merit Semifinalists and won the state championship in Boys' and Girls' Soccer, Tennis, and class 2A Football.

Patron Saint

St Rita of Cascia was wife, mother (of twins), and after the murder of her husband and the death her two sons, she spent 40 years as a nun living the Rule of St. Augustine in the monastery of Saint Mary Magdalen at Cascia. She now is a pre-eminent Augustinian saint, canonized in 1900.
