The Culver Girls Academy (CGA) Crest is a treasured symbol and is proudly worn on the blazers to symbolize a strong school with separate traditions for young women with an emphasis on citizenship and leadership preparation. The Culver Military system for young men (CMA)is a lifestyle that encourages pride in oneself, the living unit, the Corps of Cadets and Culver.
We encourage a student's life-long relationship with the arts, challenging her to find her own confident artistic voice and to gain a respect for artistic tradition based on our belief that the arts are an intrinsic part of the human experience.
