I am very happy that your school search has led you to consider Caldwell Academy, a place where learning is a joyful way of life. My own love for learning brought me here in 2014, and I have now enjoyed 34 years in education, 19 of those as a head of school. Being part of a unique learning experience that puts smiles on the faces of students and their parents resonates with me. As a bonus, I’m also a Caldwell parent, watching my own children grow and benefit from the loving guidance and instruction they receive at Caldwell.
Our school not only values healthy intellectual curiosity supported by excellent habits of critical thinking; it also encourages wisdom and virtue alongside the pursuit of all that is good, true, and lovely. As a Christian school, we see this as a natural result of placing Jesus Christ and God’s Word at the core of all that we do. The outcome is young men and women who are lifelong learners and creative problem-solvers, able to think outside the box, to develop a rational argument, and to communicate eloquently and winsomely. I believe we achieve this in distinctive ways – like no other school in the Triad – in part by offering a rich classical curriculum that represents the best of human thought.
I am humbled to be a part of this flourishing community, and I hope you will visit Caldwell to see firsthand what makes us unique.
