My daughter started at Calvary Academy when she was entering 7th grade. She is currently entering 10th grade. She absolutely loves being at this school. She is challenged academically while enjoying playing soccer and doing cheer. She has made some amazing friends while attending Calvary and has formed some wonderful relations with the teachers and staff. The teachers and staff are truly wonderful people who care deeply about their students. It truly is a blessing to be able to send my child to such a wonderful place!

Calvary Academy offers a quality education beginning at the pre-school level. Each class is designed with a Biblical Worldview embedded in the curriculum. The teachers are of the highest quality with years of experience. They are approachable and are willing to work with students and parents to mentor and grow each child academically, spiritually and socially. Parents volunteer to help with after school activities as well as support for the teachers. The student body continues to grow with enrollment. Highly recommend Calvary Academy

Our oldest started at Calvary Academy two years ago, in pre-k and we have had such a wonderful experience so far, with both pre-k and kindergarten. The atmosphere is so full of joy and the academics are excellent. My son learned to read easily and happily. Our middle child had a rough start this last year when he started pre-k and the teachers worked so patiently with him until he was thriving and loving it. I could not recommend this school more!

Calvary Academy has made some wonderful changes over the last few years. They obtained accreditation, built a beautiful and functional high school wing, and added some very good teachers. My child entered in 8th grade and was accepted immediately into the class. She is shy but easily made friends in her class and also with the students below and above her grade. Everyone was kind. It seems students who excel in academics can reach the SAT scores over the 2000s and students who struggle in certain subjects get the help they need. Teachers are patient, fair, and discipline is at the right amount (not too strict but classes are orderly). There is a good mix of male/female teachers. I haven't yet seen students act up. Sports are good especially because you can be average and still be on the team. Elementary students seem happy and get along from what I have observed on car pick up line. There is one class per grade which might be a difficult transition for some students used to a larger environment. My child loves the small environment, so it works for us. Parents seem friendly. Busing is only for Lakewood at this time, but if the school continues to grow, I am sure busing will increase. In my opinion, Calvary Academy is a happy, thriving community and worth a try if you are looking for a loving academic environment.
