A Missouri Microschool: Maria Casco on family-centered education, global travel, and peaceful parenting

Hosted byKerry McDonald|

Maria Casco is a former Montessori teacher who launched a microschool, CASCO Learning, in St. Louis, Missouri. Her journey toward education entrepreneurship began in 2020 when some local parents urged her to create a “pandemic pod.” That pod has now evolved into an established learning center for homeschooling students of all ages, with a focus on Spanish language immersion, self-directed learning, and enrichment opportunities. Additionally, Maria also hosts international family travel expeditions for her microschooling community, and provides parenting workshops and coaching. Demand for her educational offerings continues to grow.
