Welcome to Cary Academy
We are an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school for students in grades 6-12 located on a beautiful 65-acre campus in Cary, North Carolina.
Cary Academy opened in 1997 with the vision to be a school of the future, combining a traditional liberal arts program with new pedagogical and technological techniques for the 21st century.
In support of this founding vision, Cary Academy provides every student with a convertible tablet computer with inking capability, the cost of which is included in tuition. These computers are heavily used across our curriculum and have had a transformative impact on the learning environment at our school.
Today, two decades after we first opened our doors, we continue to be strongly student-centered and optimistically future-oriented in our approach.
Cary Academy holds dual accreditation from the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and AvancED, and we currently enroll 761 students.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our learning community and our efforts to awaken curiosity, inspire creativity, nurture team work and fuel individual growth,
