School Notes

  • Educating your child to Think Well, Love Rightly & Live Wisely
  • Formation not mere Information
  • We are not simply concerned with what kind of student your child is, but we are concerned with what kind of person your child is becoming.What do you want your child to look like, not just when they are 18, but when they are 30, 40 and 50? The goal of a Cambridge education has a Telos (end) far beyond mere college entrance and preparation, as we believe this is a goal far too small for education.
  • Teaching children to think and reason, The Cambridge School combines the tried and true stages of Classical education: Grammar, Logic & Rhetoric, with a Christian worldview. Small classes, dedicated Christian teachers, and comprehensive humanities, math, and science programs blend to deliver an exceptional experience where children find joy in every class.

I believe in Classical Christian education and the Cambridge school does it better than any other. The students are so impressive and it`s clear the staff and faculty love and. value the students. Definitely the top school I`ve experienced.

The Cambridge School is by far the best school that my 5th grader has attended. Not only do the students have a passion for learning but the teachers have a passion for teaching, which I feel is hard to come by these days. My 5th grader is not only learning Latin and Mandarin, but what he is learning in other subjects such as history and math is not even comparable to the public schools in this area. The Cambridge School is a true blessing.
