We absolutely love Cawny!! The small class sizes are wonderful, giving each child gets the individual attention they need. The staff is top-notch: they're very caring and friendly, but they don't coddle the kids either. And of course, I love that the truth of God's word is woven throughout everything. I used to assume that private school would be out of reach for us financially, but CAWNY is very reasonable- especially when compared to other private schools in the area. And, they offer quite a few discounts for qualifying families. After a miserable experience in public school, we decided to give CAWNY a try to I am so glad we did. I wish I'd done it years ago. The school also offers a surprising amount of extracurriculars, sports, field trips, opportunities for community service, and so on. (For instance on September 11th, the students walked to the local firehouse and police station to present gifts and thank our first responders for their service. This is quite a change of pace from the angry, police-hating narrative in our culture right now!) Give CAWNY a try, you'll be so glad you did!

My daughter is a 1st grader at this school and absolutely loves it! I love the staff, the parents & other children are just wonderful..and believe me I am very picky about what "type" of children/families she is exposed to--won't even go into her experience at public school last year. Christ is at the center of the staff and the families hearts at CAWNY, what a blessing they have excellent curriculum as well. Sweetest principle I have met in my life, "Mrs. L" is amazing woman..if you can't tell..WE LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!

What an amazing school! My 1st grader was falling behind in public school. Too many kids to each classroom. At CAWNY, my child gets so much individual attention that within 3 weeks, he was up to grade level and excelling. And I haven't even mentioned that all of this was done in a Christ-centered atmosphere! You should visit their website for the best information... CAWNY.com. Many, many parent testimonials there. It really is a wonderful school that strives to work with your budget! We are very happy here.
