    Culver Academies is private boarding school located on the shores of beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee in the heartland of central Indiana. It is an extraordinary campus that rivals many college campuses. In addition to exemplary academics, Culver focuses on leadership and character development and prepares its students for college and life beyond in ways that a traditional public school never could. Culver has more athletic offerings than about any other high school in the United States, including hockey, lacrosse, rowing, sailing, equestrian, fencing, etc. Many of Culver's facilities are world class, including the tennis, hockey and rowing centers.

    We currently have three students at Culver and plan to send our fourth child there as well. We can't begin to express how our experience at Culver has impacted all of our lives and would highly recommend this amazing institution to anyone looking for an exceptional boarding school experience for their children.

    We currently have our 3rd child at Culver. To say that it has been life changing would be an understatement. The two that graduated have since gone on to West Point and the University of Michigan and both have excelled there. Culver has help turn them into positive and mature young adults. Our impression is that the Culver environment is not only nurturing but it has forced them to think as individuals. They are well rounded and well prepared to succeed in the real world! We love it.
    During my first year at Culver, I grew the equivalent to three years that I would have had of growth back home. I got to meet people from all over the world, with different backgrounds, and different ways of thinking. The schools creates a community in which it is very easy to form lifelong friendships. Suddenly all the girls from CGA are your friends...and your closest friends are the girls from your dorm (or house), and your best friends are the girls from your floor! It does not matter what country/age/religion/ethnicity they are. Academics are the best and suddenly you are taking classes with the author of the book used in class, and not only used at culver but in other high schools in the country. The teachers genuinely care for the students and they live right on campus so they are always available to help students. Every sport/activity you can come up with is probably there and if you want/like an activity that is not there, the school is always willing to open it!
