From Cary Academy

Cultivating bold lifelong learners and world changers.

At Cary Academy, it all begins with curiosity. And an unwavering commitment to our mission: discovery, innovation, collaboration, and excellence.

That’s why our forward-thinking learning community creates countless opportunities for our students—grades six through twelve—to discover excitement in the unknown. To pursue passions new and old. To get out of the classroom—and their comfort zones—and into the world. To ask critical questions, dig deep for answers, and follow confidently where they lead. And to stride confidently into their futures as the very best version of themselves.

How? With engaging and challenging academics. Cutting-edge pedagogical techniques. Immersive, collaborative projects. Ethical and impactful community engagements. Diverse extra-curriculars. A supportive community rallying around you. And a commitment to student wellness—physical, social, and emotional.
