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.

My daughter is thriving at Carlisle School. Small classes and excellent teachers make for a safe and secure learning environment. She is challenged academically and allowed to progress according to her learning style and ability. The most important part is the love and the strong sense of family that is so apparent here.
The communications that come out always keep me in the loop and the teachers are absolutely AMAZING with ensuring Cameron is on the path to success. At Carlisle, Cameron has been able to flourish with small class sizes, a nurturing staff that is genuinely connected to each and every student, and the rigorous academics. We are proud to be part of the Carlisle family!
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. Every day when I pick our preschooler up, he asks, “Can I come back to school tomorrow?”
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.
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.
“Our experience at Carlisle has been outstanding! With three children with three very different personalities enrolled, their individual learning needs, strengths, weaknesses, and interests are met in a friendly and supportive environment allowing them to grow and succeed.”
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.
