"We are moving to the Carlsbad area this summer. CAHS looks like a great fit for our son. We are considering trying the hybrid 10th grade program where the student spends 4 days at the Oceanside campus and the remainder is home school. Does anyone have a personal experience with this program and if so - what has your experience been? Thanks in advance!"
"I am blessed to serve so many amazing students, parents, and staff members at Classical Academy High School. CAHS has grown over the past 9 years from 100 to 900 students while continuing to personalize the education for each student while maintaining a strong partnership with parents. We recently opened our brand new campus in downtown Escondido by renovating the North County Times building. Please go to our website at www.classicalacademy.com for more information on our programs and for enrollment information."
"All 3 of my kids attended CAHS and loved every minute of it. The staff is involved, engaged, solution oriented and supportive. The other students, parents, and families are quality people who value the educational process. The large number of high caliber people with integrity and ethics provides an environment that is highly conducive to learning. The students come from all walks of life. As a whole, the student body is very accepting, very inclusive, and very open. My kids participated in football, swim, water polo, choir, musical theater, robotics team, and ASB. Also, instead of taking AP classes, my kids were concurrently enrolled in college took courses at Palomar. It is an amazing school and program. As for college, my first kid is graduating next year with a mechanical engineering degree, my second just graduated from paramedic academy and was accepted into the fire academy, and my third just applied to the nursing program at CSUSM. CAHS more than prepared them for college and beyond."
"We are so grateful to have found Classical Academy five years ago, while searching for a middle school/high school. My son's experience has been positive and we feel that Classical's high standards have offered the best option for our son to remain focused and excel in his studies. The diverse body of students seem much more settled, less likely to get into trouble and appear to be enjoying the Caiman experience."
"As an incoming-sophomore this fall, I am extremely grateful I go here. Last fall, I was debating on whether to attend Classical Academy High School, Torrey Pines, or Canyon Crest, all of which were options that were open to me. While Torrey Pines and Canyon Crest had more to offer (AP classes, more class slots) I ended up attending Classical Academy. I was a bit disappointed, I was a lifer at one of the K-8 schools and wanted to break free from the mold, but after attending for a year I am glad I stayed. While my GPA may have been higher at the other schools, at CAHS, I have gotten a support that is far better than the other schools. I have a wide range of friends that attend that school, and have heard complaints about it. Reasons That I Love About CAHS 1) Students are kind, respectful, and are against bullying. 2) Misbehavior is not tolerated. There were students that mistreated me on my first day, and that student was sent to detention. Not only did the school condemn it, several upperclassmen were very firm in their fight against bullying the "fresh meat." 3) Teachers are an active part of the student's life. They spend time outside of the classroom meeting with students."
