Camelot Academy is a small, private school in Durham, NC. It was founded in 1982 by Thelma DeCarlo-Glynn who continues to serve as director of the school. Thelma's background in education for the academically talented (at the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University, and the Talent Identification Program at Duke University) led her to question mainstream teaching methods. Why not take the academic approaches being used so successfully to teach the brightest students—small class size, individualized course of study, mastery-based learning—and apply them to ALL students?
