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. 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
  • 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.

Our family has been blessed by the staff, teachers, and families, at Caldwell Academy. As rising 3rd graders, we have seen a tremendous amount of growth in our daughters' 1st year at Caldwell both academically and spiritually. Since moving to Greensboro from out of state, we knew we would need to find a healthy, thriving community for our family and Caldwell has been a blessing to us in that regard. From the beginning stages of admission, everyone at Caldwell was so hospitable and welcoming. It is an honor to partner with them for our children's education, and work together towards building a solid foundation of faith.

My family has been a part of the Caldwell community since August 2020. Today, we have one student in 1st grade and another in TK. We could not be happier with the school, teachers, & the staff. My wife and I did extensive research on the area schools before our youngest started Kindergarten. It was a no-brainer where we wanted our kids to attend after our 1st tour with Enrollment Director April Hedman. April, and every teacher we met, displayed a deep passion for Caldwell and its Classical, Christian approach. It`s an honor to partner with Caldwell in our children`s education. I highly recommend considering Caldwell Academy!

We could not be more pleased with our experience at Caldwell Academy. I began searching for the right school fit for my oldest when she was 2 years old. I began touring schools, doing online research, and talking to everyone I knew about the local options. We landed at Caldwell for Kindergarten in August 2020 - the first pandemic year. Even though the school was unable to operate normally due to covid restrictions (limited parent contact/events, limited school events, etc), I could tell already it was the right fit. They managed to keep the children in person all year and were so respectful & supportive of everyone's varying perspectives. My daughter loved her teachers & classmates and looked forward to going to school every day. The more I get to know the school, the more I am impressed by what they have to offer. I was able to guest judge the senior thesis presentations in the upper school and was blown away - the way the school had prepared these seniors was impressive to witness. My favorite part about Caldwell is how they teach children to see the world - that every human is a Child of God and should be treated with love, dignity & respect, while also standing firm on the standards the Bible sets forth for Christians to honor & uphold, even when the world is trying to influence them differently. Please visit Caldwell and consider them for your child's education! We welcome you!

I love Caldwell because the faculty and staff have partnered with my family to give my child an excellent education and a love for learning. More importantly, Caldwell is partnering with my family to foster my child`s relationship with Jesus Christ. I can`t imagine my child going to any other school.

We have two children at Caldwell (3rd and 8th grade), and both started in kindergarten. We`re very pleased with the rigor and curriculum as well as the quality of the fine arts program. The community is welcoming and feels like family. We love the Christian emphasis and ability for our kids and teachers to be able to pray for each other during school. We highly recommend Caldwell as a school of choice in the area.

If you`re curious about Caldwell Academy please be sure to schedule a tour with them. We knew this was the right place for our child almost immediately. Our child started in kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade. We definitely feel "at home." We absolutely love the classical approach to learning combined with a Christian community. Caldwell has lived up to all our expectations and more! Beyond having a great academic program the staff, faculty, and teachers are the most caring and supportive around. I know my child is being fulfilled academically, emotionally, and spiritually. What a blessing! Best decision we made!

Caldwell Academy is one of our family's greatest blessings. The community and classical Christian education are a perfect fit for our family. Each teacher has truly gone above and beyond to love our children and shepherd their hearts. With the smaller class size, they truly get to know your child and teach their whole being... not only academically, but also spiritually. We are incredibly thankful for Caldwell Academy!

We have one child that has graduated and a current high school student; both began in kindergarten. We are thankful for such a high-quality Classical Christian education that prepares them in considering various ideologies, seeking truth, and expressing themselves in a confident and considerate manner. Both enjoyed smaller class sizes and truly knowing classmates. They have loved the bonding that happens on class trips and within teams as well as special events planned by dads. Best choice we made for kids and our family, K-12!

I am a former Caldwell student and am now a proud Caldwell parent. When deciding the best approach for our son's education I knew Caldwell was the place he needed to be. Their uncompromised approach to classical education helps him build a strong foundation for his educational journey. As a Christian family who leans heavily on the Bible and its teachings, we appreciate Caldwell's foundational Christian values that come alongside us as we seek to build our son's faith as he learns and grows. Go Eagles!

I HIGHLY recommend Caldwell Academy! From the incredible Christian foundation, strong Classical education, and supportive community of parents/staff/teachers, I feel confident my children are thriving and growing. And, I know they are being adequately prepared for college in the academic rigor they are undergoing with such incredible support from teachers. If you are looking for a school and community that feels like a family, I would take a tour of Caldwell Academy and see all the school offers.

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.
