Camelot Academy

  • Camelot is a small, fully accredited, private school serving grades K-12 in Durham, NC. Camelot's small size and dedicated teaching staff make it possible for students to have a tailor-made educational experience.
  • While a student's academic progress is our primary concern, providing a safe, nurturing environment that supports social and emotional growth is part of our mission as well.
  • We seek to develop the whole person.  Each student is given a "pretest" so the teacher can determine existing skills and knowledge.
  • Instruction begins where demonstrated mastery ends.  As the student works through new material, the teacher provides instruction, feedback and guidance.
  • This may occur during one-on-one sessions, in small groups, or with the whole class.
