  • Camelot Robotics Hosts Hugely Successful Scrimmage
    On Saturday, Camelot Robotics hosted the 2nd Annual Bull City FLL Scrimmage for 20 area teams. The scrimmage was designed as a mock FLL competition to help prepare our fellow FLL teams for the upcoming competitive season.  The scrimmage started with teams participating in panel interviews on robot design in the morning and wrapped with robot performance runs in the afternoon. The event drew over 200 participants making it a successful community building experience. Camelot FLL Teams “RoboTofu Raptors” (Jackson McCalmon and Simon Holt) and “RoboFoxes” (Ethan Salemy, Ellie Larsen, Anna Bailiey, Patrick Ireland, Nate Hopkins, Clara Brown) graciously competed and shared their positive FLL experiences with their fellow teams.

    Many thanks to students Kathleen Stancil-Sutton, Virginia Bruhn, Abby Weber, Colin Whiteford, Christopher Radcliffe, Elias Stephens, Zachary Ireland, and Xander Lord who held vital roles of referees, team mentors, score keepers, time keepers, and judges. Their professionalism and dedication to their roles created the perfect environment for learning and laughter.  Additional thanks are due to an army of parent volunteers Sandy Bailey, Chris Larsen, David Whiteford, John Ireland, Cynthia McCalmon, Brennan Stephens, Jon Holt, and Chris Bailey who fully embraced many support roles throughout the day.  Coaches Angela Ireland, Bob Radcliffe and Robyn Stephens were extremely proud of how the robotics program represented Camelot Academy to our larger community."

Message From the Director

Thank you for exploring Camelot Academy.

It's a pretty daunting task to sum up the heart and soul of such a vibrant community on a website. We've worked to make these pages tell our story and we hope they will entice you to visit us in person to learn more about our very unique school.

Camelot Academy represents my life's work. As a young woman of twenty-one I had an idea of a different way to "do school." I can see now that the two prominent mentors of my youth - my dad (Chris De Carlo - a successful businessman with very high but very common sense educational standards) and my college professor (Dr Julian Stanley - the internationally renowned pioneer in gifted education who was thinking outside the educational box before it was fashionable) shaped my vision of an innovative school that was run using the best practices of both business and education. As I was filled with the naiveté and courage of youth, I set out to make this idea a reality. Read More
