Claiborne Educational Foundation is a Classical-Christian school. CEF has small classes and caring teachers. The children graduate from CEF with a life-long love for learning. I have 3 children that have graduated from CEF, and they have been at the top of their classes in Jr. High, High School and college. The foundation of a child's education is an important key for life-long success! We would love for parents to come and see what a wonderful education their children can receive. Our phone number is 601-437-4097. Schedule a visit today!

My son began attending this school in 5th grade. When I visited this school for the first time, I was impressed and I knew this was the place for my child. During the two years he atteded CEF, he learned Latin, Bible, Music, Art, History, Reading, Language Arts, Spelling, Math, and Science. If you are a parent searching for an alternative to public school, then CEF is the place for you. The small student - teacher ratio gurantees one-on-one attention. This plus the school's committment to student achievement equals sucsess.

My son has been at this school from K-4,and my daughter has from K-2.The teachers are outstanding,fun,loving people who care deeply about a childs education. This is a Christian school that still says a Prayer and the Pledge to the flag every morning before the day starts. The teaching is Classic Christian with the normal subject plus Latin and Bible.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
