Mission and Values

Cary Academy has had the same mission since 1997, the first year we opened our doors to students. And it’s not just words on paper. Ask any employee or student what the school’s mission is and chances are, they will get 100 on the test.

Cary Academy is a learning community committed to discovery, innovation, collaboration, and excellence.

Where our mission is all about what we do, our values are about how go about doing it. Our values serve as a compass for how we interact, make decisions, and approach solutions. There aren’t many, but they are vital to life at CA. What makes our values even more meaningful? They were written by our students and then adopted by the entire community. They are:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Compassion
