Caldwell Academy is a classical, christian, community school whose mission is ‘Soli Deo Gloria’, meaning, ‘Glory to God alone’. My experience has furthered me to analyze literature, improve my academic skills, and most of all, taught me a Christian worldview in which I can use throughout my life. In transitioning from a public school to a private school, I quickly realized there was a difference in Caldwell Academy that fit my education. The teachers stand out the most. The teachers are caring and truly want to see their students succeed. They are giving of their time after school for office hours and tutoring, to even editing college essays, the faculty and staff are there to aid and support the students. Caldwell Academy's foundation is more humanities based, meaning history, literature and Bible. One aspect I would change is the math and science departments.

I transferred to this school in the 6th grade and was immediately engulfed by the kids and the staff. Caldwell may be smaller than other schools but it gives them a little more freedom to change up the day to surprise and reward students for different things. The principle is very present in the halls, classes and even in our off campus class get togethers. I have never had a problem that I didn't feel like the teachers wholeheartedly listened to me. I have built so many strong friendships not just with my fellow students but with many of the teachers. We do so many things as a whole school that I love. For instance when you are a senior you get paired with a kid that is just starting at Caldwell in Kindergarten. You both meet all through out the year reading together and doing other activities. Then they send you off with a little letter as you graduate and go off to collage and you write them one as they begin the next 12 years of their school .
I am 5 years post-graduation from Caldwell and always speak so highly of this place. I started there in 6th grade and truly found my best friends for life. The teachers were incredible and truly cared about the students. It is a challenging school but I can say without a doubt that I was very well prepared for college. I love all the traditions (Thanksgiving in the Meadow, senior prank, pep rallies, Veterans Day, etc.) and have made so many memories here. Since graduating, Caldwell has completed a beautiful addition in the form of a new lunchroom/classrooms/and an art room. I hope my own children can attend Caldwell in the future.
