At the Caedmon School, we honor the individual and foster the natural curiosity of each child, which is the foundation of academic achievement.

We nurture empathy in our students to value perspectives other than their own.

Mixed-Age First and Second Grades

Mixed-Age First and Second Grades

At Caedmon, children spend two years in the same classroom with the same teacher for First and Second grade. They develop their academic and social skills in an environment that is free from competition, rich in intellectual stimulation, and full of emotional support.

Third Grade

Third Grade

In Third grade, students begin to think more profoundly about their learning in collaboration with their peers, and to think in critical and creative ways. They spend time developing their sense of personal identity and appreciating similarities and differences in their peers.

Fourth Grade

Fourth Grade

Fourth grade at Caedmon is immersed in a growth mindset. Children are encouraged to challenge their thinking through inquiry and creativity. Academics are taught through child-centered lessons, allowing students to move through the curriculum at their own pace.

Fifth Grade
