Caravel Academy

  • Caravel Academy is a private, coeducational, independent, non-profit school of approximately 1065 pupils.
  • The three year old curriculum stresses social awareness. The children learn to work cooperatively with each other and to appreciate themselves as individuals.
  • Positive attitudes and development of high self-esteem are important lower school goals.
  • Students learn to accept responsibility for their academic progress and behavior.
  • Students who have demonstrated academic excellence, an ability to work independently, and an eagerness to go beyond the basic curriculum are offered the opportunity to participate in enrichment classes.
  • In grades 5-8, we continue to emphasize high self-esteem and stress the importance of responsibility through a departmentalized team approach.
  • Wide variety of extracurricular activities is offered to all middle schoolers.
  • We believe strongly in educating a well-rounded person that beginning in the sixth grade, we require students to participate in one extracurricular activity per year.
