Cannon School envisions a world of wholehearted and adaptive contributors.After reading the following high-level overviews, please continue exploring our website to gain a deeper understanding of Cannon's academic programs.
The Lower School experience is pivotal in the educational journey of our students. From junior kindergarten through grade four, we are committed to knowing, understanding, and celebrating every child in a learning environment that is hands-on, engaging, and full of energy. Because their voices are valued, our students embrace their curiosity, creativity, and confidence as learners. Visit the Lower School section of our website for more information.
The pre-adolescent years are a time of intellectual, social, and emotional change, and our Middle School creates a sense of family and fun that brings out the best this dynamic age group has to offer. We encourage our students—from fifth graders who are being introduced to the basics of Middle School to eighth graders who are anticipating the rigors of Upper School—to take risks and learn who they are. Visit the Middle School section of our website for more information.
Beyond preparing our ninth- through twelfth-grade students for college, the Upper School experience challenges them to discover their own paths to successful lives. We help students balance rigorous programs of study with extracurricular activities so they develop their interests, passions, and talents in transformational ways. Our graduates are independent learners and impact-makers who understand how they will make a difference in an increasingly diverse world. Visit the Upper School section of our website for more information.
Beginning in ninth grade, our College Counseling team provides students and parents with a four-year program to understand the college admission process. Students learn that this decision-making process—building self-awareness, conducting research, and evaluating their decisions—is one they will use throughout their lives. Visit the College Counseling section of our website for more information.
