Classical Academy High School Reviews

I attended CAHS all four years of my high school career and absolutely loved it! The teachers and admin really care about your personal success and well-being, not just your grades. The students are kind and considerate of their classmates and overall pretty respectful of their teachers. There are so many other good things about the school, but to keep it brief, I'll just leave it at this: Small campus, nurturing academic environment, pretty accepting student body. This is not your average high school.

CAHS has been an amazing school for my three kids! The school has caring teachers and administration and a culture where students are loved and belong. Students feel safe and are thriving academically and socially. The athletic program has grown tremendously in the past several years and the coaches strive to teach the Caiman Way of Work Hard, Live Pure, Lead with Courage, and Honor the Team.
I had a wonderful time at Classical! The academics were high, there was a focus on learning through discussion, the teachers were amazingly caring, and the class sizes were small. Perhaps most incredibly for a high school, the students were generally nice. It was a safe place to be, physically and socially.
