Principal's Message

Hello and welcome to Carbon Valley Academy's website.  I am Catherine Linhardt, the school's Principal and Dean of Academics.  I have been in education since 2010 teaching at both elementary and secondary levels. I am a doctoral candidate specializing in differentiated instruction and school leadership at the University of Northern Colorado. My philosophy in and out of the classroom is to have respect and high expectations.
At Carbon Valley Academy we strive to bring the best education and amazing character development to every child we serve.  Our 100% tuition-free school is open to all students from preschool through eighth grade who want to leave middle school ready for their next steps in school and beyond.  We commit to helping students become leaders in our communities, seek excellence in their lives as well as those around them, and always strive to work hard and be nice.
We proudly serve the Carbon Valley Region with a high academic standard, a passionate staff, and a positive culture. If you are interested in learning more about our school, I encourage you to call for a tour or drop by during regular business hours.
