The Classical 
Difference


Our students enjoy an environment where thinking deeply, debating ideas, and speaking articulately about topics is the norm. They daily encounter an environment where they are encouraged to become all that God has created them to be and to appreciate the truth, goodness, and beauty that surrounds them.

What do you love about teaching at Caldwell?

I love many things about Caldwell, but what I love most is the Christ-centered atmosphere. We begin each day with morning assembly for Kindergarten through fifth grade, and we start with prayer - the children hear the good news that Jesus loves them first thing in the morning! As a teacher here, I get to weave that message throughout our study of math, science, history, and literature. I think the most important part of what we do at Caldwell is ask our students to respond to God's love for them by loving others, treating them with kindness and respect.

- Anna May, 3rd grade teacher

At Caldwell Academy, God's wisdom is at the center of our labors.  
In the classical style of educating, students' developmental stages are tethered to how and what we teach. As instructors, we strive to weave unifying, logical coherence across the curriculum rather than teaching facts in isolation. I appreciate that in our curriculum we use and reference the collective wisdom of the classical ages (and later), to provide a better understanding of our modern culture.

- Tony Storch, Rhetoric Humanities Instructor
As a teacher at Caldwell, I have the privilege of guiding students toward how to think, not just to memorize facts for a test. It all comes out of a sense of wonder from the students. They all have it, even if they don’t think they do. In the Dialectic School, students are starting to question things, not just accept what teachers say as fact. This is a perfect opportunity for us as teachers to facilitate the discussion and lead them toward their own discovery. In math, why is a perfect square called a “square?” There is a real reason - we draw it out with pebbles! In literature, a character is not just “good” or “evil.” We ask, "what motivates that character to make their decisions?” It is all about teaching the student how to think. Teaching at Caldwell does not begin with answers but with questions.
