The Mission Statement of Calvary Episcopal Preparatory is not just a grouping of words: "Calvary Episcopal Preparatory provides superior education while inspiring Reverence for God, Respect for others, and Responsibility for self." Reverence, Respect and Responsibility are the 3 R’s that are integrated in class assignments, relationships with teachers and classmates, and in the chapel experience.
While outstanding academics are a trademark for Calvary’s reputation of excellence, our pride as a Christian school is how we treat each other and grow in our understanding of God’s expectations for us.

This schools experience will be something our family will talk about and remember forever. Whenever Johnathan has a rough day we can show him the pictures, video and help him remember how many people love and support him.

Both of my kids went to Calvary from Pre-K through 8th grade. The faculty and teachers are amazing and truly show their love of teaching and of the students. It has been a true blessing for our family to be part of the Calvary family. It is hard to believe how fast the years have gone. My kids didn''t just receive a great education; they also learned leadership, communication skills, service for others, arts, sports, essential life and social skills. My two kids are very different and they learned to appreciate and embrace their uniqueness. Most importantly was the enrichment of their spiritual growth and learning with a Christian foundation.

I know I made the right decision in sending my daughter here. One of my favorite moments was the day she came back home from school after her first day of spanish class with Ms. Patsy, and she wanted to tell anyone who would listen that she could count to ten in spanish! She is just so happy to be here, and I am so grateful to the amazing teachers.

They create a wonderful sense of community here, for both the students and the families as well. The curriculum is challenging for the kids, yet it pushes them to be their best.
