 Smart Pens 

It is the philosophy of CAS that our students act as independently as possible and develop knowledge and skills that will assist them after graduation. Thus for 2019-2020 many of our students will be using SmartPen technology which will enable them to take their own notes without needing a second person as their note taker. CAS will have a limited number of SmartPens for loan to our students.
