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.

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
