Testimonials

Here's what just a few of our parents and alumni had to say about the education and formation their children receive at Clear Water Academy. 


Clear Water Academy has given me vast opportunities to become a versatile, well rounded person and the leadership instilled in me will have a strong impact on my future endeavors. All the people I have encountered have shaped my character and prepared me moving forward into post-secondary education. Trips and volunteering activities such as Mission Mexico and our Pilgrimage across Italy have been some of the highlights of my life, and these memories will always remain close to my heart. Thank you Clear Water!

Clear Water Academy has been a gift to our children and our family in so many ways.  The teachers and staff are top-notch, caring and nurturing and they put in extra time to ensure our children are taught based on their learning styles.  Clear Water is unique in that it forms great young people in knowledge, character, faith and spirit and as a family we witness this in our children’s daily interactions.  We fell in love with CWA when we first visited the school and learned that the school’s values are the same as our values.  Our children love the school as much as we do because it is a special community.

As a teacher, it is a challenge to express what has Clear Water Academy meant to me personally, professionally, and spiritually. Simply put, it has meant everything.  From my beginnings as a basketball coach in 2010, prior to a career in teaching, then as a student teacher, and now entering my 4th year teaching the Grade 4 Boys, I have always felt welcomed by the community and supported by administration. It is a great place to teach. The staff, the people, and the students take care of each other. CWA is a place where we count our blessings as opposed to our challenges. It is a place to learn and grow in faith, for both teacher and student alike.

Working at Clear Water Academy over the last 10 years has truly taught me the difference between a job and a vocation.  I am continually inspired by my devoted students and my incredible colleagues and have seen the difference an authentic Catholic education can make in our everyday lives.  Through professional development, retreats, coaching, mission trips, community events, and many other aspects of the school, I have been given so many occasions to develop every significant part of my life.  I feel very blessed to be a part of this loving community and believe that I am a better teacher and person because of these opportunities and the wonderful people in the CWA family.

Clear Water Academy makes faith the foundation of teaching and learning.  We are committed to calling forth the best in children and to truly addressing the education of the whole child.  It is a gift to live openly with God as your wellspring at Clear Water Academy!

To the faculty and staff at Clear Water Academy. We are very proud and honored to volunteer for this luncheon; it’s a very small token of our appreciation to each and every one of you.  Over the past 11 years your dedication and commitment has always been evident.  Erika and Grace are so very happy to go to school each day (and are still smiling at the end of it).  We often hear “Today was the best day ever!”   From the very first day we walked through the doors we knew that Clear Water Academy was a special place.  It is not just a school but a place where families work with faculty and staff to create a warm, nurturing, loving and safe environment.  The quality of education and formation Erika and Grace receive is second to none.  Thank You and God bless each of you for all your hard-work."

"Our family can't express enough appreciation to all the wonderful staff at Clear Water Academy. The excellent instruction our children receive, coupled with a high level of caring makes for a beautiful learning environment. It takes a special person to become a teacher and those who choose a career in support within an educational institution. But to bring the level of caring, professionalism and quality that the Clear Water Academy staff does to the school makes them extra special and truly blessed!"
