Not every child can earn straight A’s. Not every child can dunk a basketball. Not every child can sing beautifully on a stage in front of an audience. But every child can learn to lead. And our program is designed to help each of our students find a fitting path to leadership, excellence, and success.
Located in Martinsville, Virginia, Carlisle School sets the standard in our region for excellence in education. We provide a nurturing yet challenging learning environment where children will grow academically and socially.
Our small class sizes in the Lower and Upper Schools give teachers the ability to focus on each individual student. The uniqueness of each student is recognized and fostered, helping grow their self-esteem so they can reach their true potential in the classroom, stage or athletic arena.
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.
Carlisle prepared me not only for Virginia Tech but law school and my legal career. I know I wouldn’t be where I am now if it weren’t for the teachers who cared so much about me and my success.
