Caravel Academy Reviews

Caravel Academy is a good school for those who like small environments with personal connections to both students and teachers. It has a healthy amount of sports and activities for students to participate in and a warm, friendly setting for students to thrive in and create a family with. The biggest complaint I have with this school is that it can lack in a few of its sports, activities, and classes. For example, there is no option to take AP Economics, participate in crew, or compete against other schools for tennis.

Caravel Academy is very structured and organized. They offer a variety of sports, clubs, extracurricular activities and is small and centered. Every teacher knows your name and is genuinely interested in your education.
Caravel is a great school when it comes to academics and social involvement. It feels like one big family and you can always find a friendly face in any room you walk into. The teachers here are great and are always willing to help as long as you ask. The music program is my favorite part of this school. There are a lot of great opportunities and everyone is so supportive of each other, always encouraging you to do your best.
