Clairbourn families are a crucial part of the school community. Our families partner with the school to support the atmosphere of learning, belonging, joy, challenge and success.

Welcome to our Community!

Our nearly 100 years in education have taught us the importance of giving students a rigorous academic program, a wide array of co-curricular classes, a strong foundation of values, and a supportive and responsive community. Our goal is to develop in our students the skills, habits, and ethical compass that will prepare them for their future.
The combination of academics, character and ethical values provides students with a foundation on which to build a successful life and career — a sense of true belonging, gratitude and a positive sense of self-worth necessary to be accomplished, resilient, and adaptable through life. Our students need these foundational qualities.

The parent/school partnership is evident daily when parents join us for Morning Assembly, volunteer in our school store, serve lunch on special lunch days, and lead events like the book fair and carnival. Each act of service to the school directly supports the vibrant student experience. Parent involvement models the importance of serving one’s community and shows students the value parents place on the opportunity for their children to receive an excellent Clairbourn education.

Our graduates are prepared to be successful. It is essential to communicate ideas clearly and to work well with others from a standpoint of respect. The diversity of culture, beliefs, and backgrounds at Clairbourn prepares students for real-world experiences. With the character and skills they develop at Clairbourn, they can be engineers, athletes, doctors, actors, business people, entrepreneurs, scientists, teachers, and artists; they can be confident leaders in their schools and communities. Whatever their choice, they will be ethical, responsible, respectful, grateful, adaptable, and resilient citizens, because they are Scholars and Leaders with Heart.
This website is a great place to start learning about Clairbourn. However, nothing can replace a personal visit. Please come to our campus and experience first-hand our vibrant community of inspired educators and students, and feel the joy of the Clairbourn experience.
