Carthage Classical Academy (CCA) originated in May 2013, when several parents seeking a quality education for their children came together to discuss the options available in Tunis. They all had a desire for a classical English-based education with an emphasis on French and Arabic.
Some of the families traveled to the U.S.A. to do further research into classical education and seek out a partnership with a like-minded school. The partner school provided some much-needed information and experience that helped propel the formation of CCA.
Shortly after returning to Tunis, the partner parents began the paperwork to officially form Carthage Classical Association as a Tunisian association made up of expat founders. When this was completed, a location was found to house the first primary school to be formed under the association’s umbrella. At that same time, the complete dossier was submitted to the Minister of Education for final approval of the formation of an international primary school. Final approval for Carthage Classical Academy was received from the Minister of Education in August 2015.
