    Cambrian is amazing! I took 8th grade there last year, and am now starting 9th. They put me in the classes I was ready for, so even though I was only in 8th grade they allowed me to take high school classes like marine biology and media studies. They even allowed me to take Algebra 2 and then Precalculus online! I was constantly stimulated, challenged, and engaged. I learned a ton! The small class sizes allow for one-on-one interaction with the teachers. The school is perfect for gifted kids, as well as those who just want a higher quality education or a head start on life.

    I can't say enough good things about Cambrian. My son, who is starting college in about 2 weeks, found himself there. Great teachers, challenging courses, and most of all people who really cared about him and his potential helped turn around an unhappy middle school kid into an enthusiastic student and leader.

    He tried one year of public high school and was completely frustrated and turned off by the low expectations, uninspired teaching, and lack of connection with the school community. Within two weeks at Cambrian all of that completely changed and his next three years were ones of continual growth in all areas: social (he was involved in public service and learned so much by studying with kids from other countries), academic (both in science and in the liberal arts), and artistic (he learned a lot about music production and technology).
    Our highly gifted rising freshman loves this school. We brought her here last year for 8th grade after having spent many frustrating years advocating for her needs in public schools and getting "she is doing great" responses from teachers and administration. Cambrian Academy teachers are nurturing and able to both stretch our daughter academically and respond to her emotional needs at the same time. We love that Cambrian Academy has small class sizes where each student is treated as an individual. Our child feels "seen", accepted, and valued, and she can't wait to see what Cambrian Academy high school will offer her.
