Located in Martinsville, 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 each individual student. 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.
“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.”
“[Transferring to Carlisle] is the best decision we could have made for our boys. Our Chandler has flourished so much. As a parent, nothing makes my heart happier than to feel we made the right move for our child.”
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 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.
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.
