Learning to lead. Leading to serve. Always by example.

Students do not merely attend Culver; they become part of the Culver Story – a story that is rooted both in tradition and innovation.

Our purpose. Our location. Our foundation

These elements forge a powerful legacy of leadership and character, timeless values, rigorous academics, and global citizenship that culminate in arguably the best whole person education in the country.
