General School Mission

"Carlisle School believes that the transmission of knowledge, the development of responsible and honorable behaviors, and the encouragement of lifelong learning are our primary goals. Carlisle provides a nurturing, positive, and safe environment in which everyone is treated with courtesy and respect. We celebrate the uniqueness of every student. Our curriculum and instructional practices are designed to meet students' individual physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs.
As we prepare our students for higher education, we are also preparing them for life. Academically strong programs that provide opportunities for the development of critical thinking and reasoning skills are complemented by school-wide practices that not only foster personal integrity, mutual respect and development of self-esteem but also that encourage diversity.
Character development and intellectual growth are the business of everyone at Carlisle. Teachers, administrators, parents and the larger community share our mission to produce knowledgeable, confident, and caring students who will be active and responsible citizens in the changing world of the twenty-first century.
