“We love Walton Academy. Our child has been with Children’s World Learning Center since she was 8 weeks old and has learned and grown so much physically and intellectually that we knew she would do great at the Academy. The teachers are so friendly and eager to help and offer the encouragement and intellect that the kids need to excel. They are always available to answer any questions we have regarding what we needed to do to help our child to succeed. The small class size is also a plus, offering the one on one that each kid needs to advance at their own pace. Our daughter left Kindergarten reading at an end of 1st grade level and is now in 1st grade reading at an early 3rd grade level, doing multiplication, telling time, studying art and music and learning Spanish. She loves Walton Academy and is excited about going to school every day.”

Academic Overview

Walton Academy is not your average school.  Small class sizes, highly qualified teachers with the freedom to teach, and a great support system are some things that set us apart! Here at Walton Academy, we meet students on their level and help them reach their full potential by encouraging them to problem-solve and think critically. Our use of guided reading, writing, and math groups allow our teachers to give each child the individualized attention that they need in order to succeed!


Science | Technology | Engineering | Arts | Math

STEAM helps prepare children for real life through hands-on and inquiry-based learning.  In STEAM challenges, one may fail the first time (or twenty), but you learn to persevere.  It is our job at Walton Academy to give your child the tools to keep going, to think outside the box, and to apply the insight they learn along the way.   As Thomas Edison once said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

Character Education

Walton Academy understands that we are helping to form future citizens that will one day impact our society.  We make it our priority to incorporate character education every day to instill honorable principles within our students.  Teachers encourage positive relationships and upstanding characteristics by lessons taught in class, as well as community outreach projects.  Walton Academy has also partnered with Sanford Harmony to empower students to communicate, cooperate, connect, embrace diversity, and resolve conflict.  These guidance lessons are taught bi-weekly to build healthy social-emotional habits through use of developmentally-appropriate stories and activities.


We strive to cultivate a love of learning in all subject areas.  Art, Music, Physical Education/Health Education, Spanish, and Guidance are offered at Walton Academy.  Our teachers have a passion for fostering new perspectives, encouraging collaboration among peers, and igniting creativity.

Scholars After School Program

The Walton Academy Scholars Program is an Extended Day option for those that desire before/after school care.  It is designed to enhance student’s academic, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth in an environment rich with virtue, culture, and play.  Students are given opportunities to complete homework, eat nutritious snacks, and participate in daily enrichment activities such as:  reading, math, science explorations, great literature, fine arts, theater, character development, writing, and exploring many different cultures, customs, and languages.



Walton Academy began out of the desire to bridge the gap between early childhood and elementary education. We recognized the need for a consistent, nurturing, and innovative environment that would move children from birth through fifth grade ensuring a seamless and high-quality educational experience.


Defining Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education is defined as the formal and informal education of children from birth through age eight.  Early childhood is an essential period in a child’s life.  During these formative years, children build their foundations of well-being, self-confidence, academics, physical health, and overall happiness. Research shows that during these years children have the ability to learn more quickly than at any other time in their life. If a child is successful in school by third grade, research indicates that the same child will most likely be successful throughout all of their academic careers.  However, the reverse is also true. If a student is struggling academically by third grade, it is likely that the child will continue to struggle throughout the remainder of their academic careers.

Walton Academy was created with every child in mind. Research shows that high-quality education is critical for children during these early years.  Our accelerated academic program, state of the art facilities, and qualified teachers who are committed to excellence empowers every child to attain new heights in their education.


Seamless Transitions

Our model is unparalleled in our community.  Children’s World Learning Center currently operates four childcare centers in the Greenville/Pitt County area and is still growing.  Children coming through our childcare centers are equipped with the skills needed to make a smooth transition into our kindergarten at Walton Academy.  This progression is effortless for all involved because the students and families are already part of our community.

We understand that time with your family is valuable and sometimes can be limited. Therefore, Walton Academy offers transportation between all four CWLC locations to make it as convenient as possible.  Parents may drop off and pick up their child at the most accessible CWLC facility.
