Caldwell Academy is the school where excellence is expected. Since 2012, Caldwell Academy has been on the move with increasing test scores and it is now a Level 1+ school.  The dedicated staff is preparing students for the school year and for life.  Each year, our Helping Hands Committee collects and distributes food to needy families as well as other acts of community service.  Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade scholars are able to participate in the Junior Beta Club which in the past has raised money for Breast Cancer Awareness, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and they have collected and donated clothes. To get our students college ready, middle school students take college tours.  In the past they have visited DePaul University, Grand Valley State University In Michigan, and Purdue University.  At Caldwell Academy, we educate them today in preparation for a successful future.
