School Reviews

I have been a parent of Calvary Christian School students for 14 years 14 years. My children began in the 3 year old preschool class and my oldest son completed 8th grade. I currently have another child enrolled. I can not say enough about this school. The small class sizes and amazing staff are a huge blessing. There is a special feeling at Calvary that just does not exist at other places. I would highly recommend CCS to anyone who is looking for preschool through 8th grade! Amazing School!
