From James “Russell” Garrett
Assistant to Dean of School, Music
As a school, Cambridge is focused on the intellectual preparation of our students through academic discipleship. However, academic discipleship reaches much farther than the classroom! Whether competing on the athletic field, creating beauty in the art studio, acting on the stage, or building community at a social event, we aim to create an environment where our students can use their many talents for the glory of God and grow in community with one another.
Cambridge student leaders learn to lead by example and through service to others. We strongly encourage all students to get involved in the various leadership opportunities on campus. Our student leaders, with intentional faculty council, are given the ability to plan our social events, lead worship during chapel, be a leader within their assigned House, and much more. These on-campus opportunities are only the beginning of the service and involvement of our students. Our student leadership teams also plan and organize service projects for their peers to participate in each quarter as they serve our greater community. It is through these projects and events that we hope to shape these young men and women committed to serving the Lord through their actions and interactions with the people around them.
Our seniors repeatedly say during their exit interviews that the thing they most like about Cambridge is the sense of unity that develops in their class over the years. Our caring faculty and small class sizes coupled with our events and programs foster a profound sense of companionship among classmates. This sense of companionship, built upon our thorough curriculum and Christ-centered environment, is the pride of Cambridge students and professors alike.
