Mission & Commitments

The Carey School Mission

Specializing in elementary education, The Carey School inspires curious, confident, and joyful learners and celebrates childhood in an inclusive, diverse community that nurtures kindness, respect, and personal responsibility.

Our Commitments Bring the Mission to Life

Educate each child through an academically challenging and balanced preschool to fifth grade educational curriculum based on the fundamentals of reading, language arts, and math.
Advance our curriculum with integrated studies in science, music, art, world languages, technology, library studies, physical education, and other enrichment programs.
Enable students to reach their fullest potential by providing a developmentally appropriate curriculum that nurtures cognitive, creative, social-emotional, and physical growth.

Sustain a culture of teaching excellence through passionate faculty, curriculum reviews, collaboration, and professional development.

Partner with families to maintain our inclusive community and build student awareness of self as well as the world beyond.
Graduate enthusiastic, life-long learners who are prepared with the skills for a successful educational journey.

“At Carey, we help students to know themselves as learners, build a toolbox of social emotional skills, identify who they are and appreciate the differences that make our community diverse, and develop their intellect through foundational academic learning.” – Neely Norris, Head of School
