Located in Axton, VA, Carlisle School sets the standard in our region for excellence in education. We provide a challenging curriculum in a nurturing learning environment where children will grow academically and socially. Our small class sizes give teachers the ability to focus on individual students. Each student’s uniqueness is recognized and fostered, helping to grow their self-esteem so they can reach their true potential in the classroom, stage, or athletic arena.
“Carlisle is important to me because the education given is beyond a typical private school. It is the dream of how education should be, and the character/moral education is helping me raise my daughter into a human being I am so proud of all the way through.”
“We have been very pleased with Carlisle’s methods of teaching. We are truly delighted with how our children are embraced, nurtured, and supported by the staff and teachers. Our children are excited to go to school and learn new things each day.”
“The student and teacher relationships are special and helped me open up. It makes me feel comfortable and safer, knowing that the teachers are doing everything they can to help the students here succeed.”
“Carlisle School has allowed our son Ben to flourish over the past two years. Our family believes Carlisle brings out the best of each child by leveraging their individual strengths while promoting kindness and leadership skills.”
“Carlisle has always provided a safe and nurturing environment. Where challenging academics have been the norm, where team play, the stage, and other extracurricular activities have built confidence and the ability to work with others. Upon graduation, our children were more than prepared for college, academically and to lead with self-confidence and ability.”
“Our 3rd grader was struggling with virtual learning, she was getting behind in reading and writing. We made the move to Carlisle mid-year; in just five weeks she has made dramatic improvements academically. It is amazing the excitement she now has for reading and writing. Everyone is so kind, she has made friends quickly and absolutely loves her teacher. School is not a chore anymore!”
We support Carlisle because this is the type of educational environment that fosters our son’s love of learning. Carlisle is a very special place where we feel safe and secure knowing that the teachers love and care for our child the way we do. It has enhanced our son’s life in so many ways, and we wouldn’t have him anywhere else.
Carlisle feels like a family with dedicated faculty who work closely with each student. Our daughters are receiving an outstanding education and benefit greatly from the small class sizes.
