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 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.
My daughter has been at Carlisle since Kindergarten. She is now in the 8th grade. We love the school because it is more of a family. The teachers care—the staff care. I’m so thankful and appreciative of how this school goes beyond the call of duty for its students. If you want small classes, caring teachers, and a great education, Carlisle School is the place.
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!
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 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.
“[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.”
“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.”
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.
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.
