Founded in 1978 by a group of parent volunteers, The Clintonville Academy has grown and evolved into a successful private school offering a full and wide-ranging curriculum for kindergarten through eighth-grade.
We believe that a low student-to-teacher ratio and actively involved parents are key ingredients for individual learning and growth.
And while students live in all areas of the city, the school maintains a neighborhood feel – building long-term relationships and strong academic accomplishments.
Clintonville Academy will provide an accelerated and comprehensive curriculum for all learners in a safe nurturing environment led by the teamwork of committed staff and parents.

School Reviews

I have been a parent of a CA student since pre-kindergarten (she is now in 7th grade). Just by virtue of its small size, students at CA learn so much because of the individual attention they receive. The school believes in educating the "whole child" so that they grow up to be engaged citizens of the world. Our daughter is mature, smart and respects her peers and teachers and she will likely test into higher level classes when she enters high school. I also love that she will have had 8+ years of French before she enters high school. Every teacher and administrator at CA has each student's best interest at heart and they are truly committed to seeing each student succeed and thrive.
