CA-A School of Excellence
Nurturing Hearts-Challenging Minds
Calhoun Academy was chartered and founded in 1968 on Highway 8 West in Calhoun County for the purpose of providing excellence in education. The founders felt that it is the responsibility of the school to provide maximum growth in the field of education and duty bound to include the moral and cultural education of its students. Calhoun Academy's responsibility to each student is to motivate by challenging the mind, curiosity, and creative ability. The objective of Calhoun Academy is to lead students to develop skill and knowledge in the Arts and Sciences of Civilization, and to an understanding of their privileges and responsibilities in relation to their state, their nation, and their God. The mission of Calhoun Academy is "Striving to nurture the student as a whole- the mind, the body, and the soul". The goals of CA are as follows:
1. To employ and retain qualified and competent faculty and staff who are dedicated to teaching and service.
2. To teach quality academic courses which ensure successful college preparation.
3. To provide student services which assist individuals in goal selection, decision making, establishment of values, and development of attitudes of responsibility and cooperation.
4. To sponsor services which include sports as well as those social, extra-curricular, civic and cultural activities which develop leadership, creative skills and personal growth.
