Central Elementary School is a pair of historic school buildings in New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina. The First New Bern Academy is located on New Street and was built about 1806. It is a two-story, brick building with a hipped roof and two interior ridge chimneys. It features a semicircular tetrastyle entrance porch with Tuscan order columns and a roof cupola. It has a rear addition dated to the late-19th century. The Second New Bern Academy was built in 1884 to replace the previous building. The buildings retained their educational functions until 1971. The 1806 building now houses a museum, while the 1884 building has been converted into apartments.

The buildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
