Intentional Learning, Meaningful Play
Columbia Academy for Learning and Enrichment (CALE) is a place where we encourage kids to be kids while also helping them reach their full academic potential.
We are a whole-child approach to education which means we have built our school to engage in student-centered teaching and learning while also caring for the mind and body.
Kindergarten is offered as a full or half-day option. We intentionally keep our class sizes small and place a strong emphasis on our positive and collaborative culture. All CALE students will thrive in an environment that sculpts a love of self, others, and the community at large.
We promise to love kids, keep them safe, and grow them as healthy and thriving human beings.
We promise to provide the best in academic instruction. Every child deserves to know how brilliant they are.
We promise to provide student driven and engaging academic opportunities in a nurturing and supportive environment.
After more than 20 years in education, we’ve seen it all. We’ve been educators and administrators - and we know there is a better way. CALE offers strong academics in a unique, hands-on approach to learning. Our instruction is child-centered in a relaxed environment with lots of flexibility to adapt our day and meet children’s needs and curiosity. It is the perfect combination of intentional learning and meaningful play. We believe this is how school should be done.
