School Notes

  • Caldwell Academy believes all truth is God`s truth and our students are created in His image. For this reason, we approach all subjects from a biblical worldview, where students are regarded as souls to be nourished, not vessels to be filled. We encourage our entire school community to pursue wisdom, virtue, and service to the glory of God. Our ultimate goal at Caldwell Academy is to produce graduates who will answer God`s call to "act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God".  - Micah 6:8b
  • The world around us has never moved faster. Technology and culture are reshaping our lives at an incredible speed. At Caldwell, we believe people who can think clearly and articulate well will always be in high demand, and even more so in an ever-changing culture. As we equip students with the tools needed to become lifelong learners, they also gain the knowledge and ability to grow and learn independently, regardless of their career path. At Caldwell, the classical model of the Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric stages of learning, provides an educational framework that corresponds to a student`s natural development.
  • Our faculty, staff, students, and families come from a variety of church backgrounds, family dynamics, zip codes, and socioeconomic situations. However, we come together with a shared passion to see our students become winsome discerners and communicators of God`s truth. We pray together, serve together, learn together, and have fun together as a community.

After being in education for the past 18 years, and having children in three schools, I have to say...I LOVE Caldwell Academy. From the Head of School to the children, they know the vision and mission of the school. They are consistent and fair. Their curriculum is the best I''ve ever seen. Students graduating from Caldwell are not only well prepared for college, they soar in their college courses. Yes, students must work hard in their classes at Caldwell, but I''ve never met a more supportive staff in my life. Very kind, honest and loving! Seriously, I can't say enough about the quality of this school. My children, husband and I are all thrilled with Caldwell Academy!

Our children have attended Caldwell Academy since Kindergarten. We now (in 2015) have a 7th grader and a 4th grader. We (parents) attended public schools in North Carolina. This is our first exposure to a classical, Christian model of education. It makes great sense to see the way the various stages build upon one another: memorization in Grammar School, critical thinking in Dialectic (middle) School and persuasive speaking/writing in Rhetoric (high) School. Our family is grateful for an academically-rigorous school where subjects are taught through the lens of a Christian worldview. We love being part of the strong community at Caldwell Academy.

We looked at almost every school in Greensboro and ultimately decided to send our three children to Caldwell Academy. It is one of the best decisions we have ever made. Caldwell is providing our children with a well-rounded, rich, and challenging education. But, perhaps more importantly, they are being taught to be good, virtuous people. We take comfort in knowing that the staff and teachers pray for our children every day and truly want the best for our children.
