School Reviews

Calvary Christian School is the best school in the area. Our family LOVES CCS.
- Posted by Parent, 02/28/12
We have been a part of Calvary for 8 years. My two boys have had a wonderful learning environment here. The teachers are sincerely caring and supportive. The activities are widespread and include academics, arts and athletics. The great thing is that they work with the students to allow as much variety and individuality in extra curriculars as possible.
- Posted by Parent, 02/28/12
Calvary Christian School is a great balance for our family of academics, athletics, fine arts, extra-curricular programs and a true Christian, Bible-based education. We feel it is the best school in this area, by far.
