Real Testimonials

"Deciding to enroll our children in the vibrant Caurus Academy community was akin to love at first sight;  that feeling you get when you just "know".   The staff is committed to nurturing the complete well being of each child through hands-on learning, appropriately-paced lessons and projects, and in the practice of the "responsive classroom".  The element of student-led discovery is evident in every classroom, in the creative implementation of the garden and playground, and in every respectful and genuine interaction.   Seeing our kids come home with joyful hearts and minds and a quest for continued learning is a gift that keeps on giving, both in our family and in our larger community.  This sense of belonging invokes the desire for deeper and more connected involvement in the school.  Caurus Academy fosters the sense of pride and thirst for knowledge that is inherent in every child.  We are so grateful to be affiliated with the Caurus Academy family."
