    In 2011 Ronnie Cahana suffered a severe stroke that left him with locked-in syndrome: completely paralyzed except for his eyes. While this might shatter a normal person’s mental state, Cahana found peace in “dimming down the external chatter,” and “fell in love with life and body anew.” In a somber, emotional talk, his daughter Kitra shares how she documented her father's spiritual experience, as he helped guide others even in a state of seeming helplessness.

Melissa Fleming of the UN's refugee agency calls on all of us to make sure that refugee camps are healing places where people can develop the skills they’ll need to rebuild their hometowns.

The Catherine Hamilton Power Library (PYC-Form V) and the Eleanor Kurtz Beaton Library (Forms VI – XII) welcome all students, faculty, and staff during the school year for instruction, research, study, and leisure reading. Click here to read our Library Philosophy.

There have been more than 70 studies on the impact of school library programs on academic achievement. The findings have been consistent. An excellent library program correlates with a 10 to 20 percent increase in standardized test scores when compared to schools without this strong educational component.

  • Quality print, digital, and technology resources support and enrich the curriculum.
  • Carefully selected  collections help students to become lifelong readers for information and enjoyment.
  • State of the art technology is incorporated into the learning/teaching process. CSG works with area libraries: Columbus Metropolitan Library, Bexley Library, Ohioana Library.
  • The professionally trained and credentialed librarians plan and team teach with faculty at all division levels. The librarians teach information literacy skills and provide individual assistance to students.
  • Dedicated support staff enables the professional librarians to collaborate with teachers, and to participate in school-wide committee meetings and projects.
  • Technology is an essential part of a successful library program. Information resources, including licensed databases, are available throughout the school via networked computers and wireless access points. Going beyond the walls of the physical library, all digital resources can be accessed wherever there is an Internet connection, on and off campus.
  • The librarians provide professional development and in-service training for teachers on integrating information literacy into the curriculum, and getting the most out of technology.
