We teach your kids the way we would teach our own kids: provide a challenging curriculum, instill character and citizenship, and give unmatched student attention.
Founded in 1978, an engaged group of parents and teachers built – and have sustained – a high-performing school around a community mindset and whole child development while upholding a strong pedagogy and hands-on approach to primary school learning.
We view being a small school as an educational advantage. It gives us freedom and flexibility to employ tailored strategies that work best for our students without sacrificing the high standards for academic achievement that we expect.
We are a school that focuses on the educational growth and development of the whole child – intellect, character, citizenship, cultural appreciation, creativity, social interaction, personal ethics, and emotional and physical well-being.

From Our Director
Clintonville Academy has been my second home for several years now, and I couldn’t be happier. My family and I fell in love with CA when we enrolled our youngest son in the PreK program in 2015 – and haven’t looked back since.
From the moment we stepped through these doors, it felt like family. I volunteered every week and got to see the school community and incredible faculty first hand – and knew we’d found something special. The students are fantastic and the families are highly involved and invested.
Our teachers love what they do, and are fully engaged as creative and collaborative educators. And I’m thrilled to say Clintonville Academy gives them to a place to truly focus on teaching and developing their students with intention.
Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. We’d love to hear from you and answer any questions you have about CA, and get to know you, your family, and your student.

From Our Parents
“We chose Clintonville Academy six years ago, because of their whole-child philosophy and affordability. We’ve stayed for the diverse student body and the inclusive environment.”

We prioritize disciplined learning while also providing for individual freedom and creativity – and believe that a child learns best when she is aware that teachers and parents are concerned about and interested in her as an individual.
We believe small class size is extremely significant in the elementary and middle school years; that the educational process of the child should be governed by logic and reason; and that value should be placed upon subjective considerations such as his emotions, imagination, creativity, and desires.
