Open Quote This school is amazing! Our son has been attending since Kindergarten and is currently in second grade. I love the parental involvement in the school in day-to-day activities, it really feels like a big family! My son loves going to school everyday and it seems as though the children are learning things ahead of when the local public schools are learning them. The class sizes are small so there is so much more one-on-one time for the teacher and students! Close Quote

Open Quote The teachers make this school the amazing place to learn that it is. Actually, they make Collegiate the inseparable part of our lives that it is. My kids' teachers are like members of our family- they aren't just looking out for the academics and learning but also for the social and emotional health and growth of these students. The hours that my children spend at Collegiate - voluntarily - after the school day is over, or before it begins, speak volumes about the quality and integrity of the staff that works here.

Open Quote CAC has only been our home for a little over a year, but has changed our daughter's life. She doesn't learn like most other students, and hated going to school before we came here. As a parent who values education, her struggle at school and the attitude she had about learning was heartbreaking. The teachers at our old school were nice, but seemed to have decided she was a kid who would never do well in school and just gave her busy work. I recognize that my daughter will always have challenges in learning, but I also know she can learn with the right help. The teachers and special education specialist at Collegiate have gone above and beyond to work with her personally to make her feel successful. She doesn't want to come home at the end of the day now, which is more than I could ever have imagined at the beginning of last year. We had no idea this school existed until we heard about CAC from my husband's coworker, and we feel so blessed to have found this school and hope others in our situation will find it also.

Open Quote My kids are proud to go to Collegiate Academy and I couldn't be happier with the education they are getting from the great teachers at this school. We came to Collegiate when my oldest was in 8th grade, and she is now a junior, so we have been with the school through bad times and good. The school went through a rough transition when the principal who founded the school left a couple of years ago. I think the new principals have been in place for about two years now and positive things are happening. State test results just came out and even though the school doesn't make a big deal about test scores, I was impressed with the high scores for my daughter's class. Highly recommend CAC!

Open Quote This school is amazing in every aspect - its nearly ineffable. I've gone here since 5th grade and am now a sophomore, and attending CAC is one of the best decisions I've ever made. From elementary to middle to high school, my experience has only gotten better and better. I urge any student and or parent who reads this to seriously consider going to school here, I am convinced that there is no better place. And to address the prior comment of having an insufficent high school, I have improved so much from 8th grade going into freshman year, its awesome. I came in being partially proficent in math, English, and science and now I am in an 11 grade AP English course, a great Chemistry class, and in Pre-Calculus. This is proggress, this is something that will help me for the rest of my life, thanks CAC Close Quote

Open Quote I am a sophmore at Collegiate Academy and it has been my home for five years, running on six. You could not ask for a better learning environment, staff, peers, or teachers. Some people might believe that our small size is a negative factor, but it is because of our size that the school is a family, and though it may sound cliche, it it very true. Close Quote

Open Quote Dedicated, committed teaching staff. Stong K-8 curriculum. Would not recommend for high school. School administration ineffective and inadequate. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
