    "Calhoun Academy is a great small town school. We have lived here for 16 years and as with any small town, I will always be considered from 'off' which doesn't bother me. My son graduated from there and my daughter is in high school. I have been pleased with both of their levels of education and their extra activities - one chose to play sports and the other did not. I think that some of the comments here are pretty harsh - you will probably find that most schools, private or public, are going to have 'in' crowds and other issues that all kids have to deal with at some time in their lives. I don't know if my children are classified as 'in crowd' by their peers, and I really don't care because that is not why they are in school. What I do know is that they have a good education from caring teachers, they love their school, and they have made friends which will last a lifetime."

    "I completely agree with the parent who posted on June 2, 2008. CA is a great school, but being part of the 'in' crowd can sometimes be all that matters. If you are not originally from St. Matthews or have no family there, it will be very hard for you as a parent, student, or teacher to last very long there. Best of luck if you choose this school!"

    "I also have to agree. Calhoun Academy is a wonderful school but if your child is not a part of the 'in crowd' then your child will not have as many opportunities. The same children are chosen over and over to attend camps, to be a part of activities including 'pageants' and such. It is very disappointing to the children who work just as hard but don't get a chance to enjoy the extras. Our children attend CA because it is a better alternative than the local public school. However, if we had another alternative they would not. CA is also behind the times on keeping up with technology and that is very important in today's world. Most of the kids have no idea what a Smart Board is while the public schools have had them for years."

    "Be careful with CA. Although I did go to this school and my child now attends, if you aren't in the 'popular parent click' your child is the one who suffers."

    "Calhoun Academy is an excellent school that offers students the ability to study college prep classes, actively participate in year-round sports and enjoy a friendly atmosphere. My son and daughter were both accepted to the college of their choice and feel well prepared for the challenges that higher learning presents. My family has been very blessed by this 'great school'."
