School Reviews

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.
