“I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Carlisle school through two different perspectives, one as a faculty member and more recently as a parent. I have come to think less of it as a job and more as an intellectual opportunity. It has provided me with a great educational foundation that I want for my own children. In fact, we enrolled our daughter in the preschool program this year and it was a decision that has validated our feelings about the Carlisle Experience.”

“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.”

“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.”

“At Carlisle, I’ve found that you will not only get an education you can be proud of while having teachers that truly care about you, but you will also always be part of a family here.”

“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.”

“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.”
