Calvary Academy has made a commitment to Christian Education.
The mission of our school is to provide our students with maximum spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical development; to provide an atmosphere where the highest gains in knowledge, skills, and wisdom can be attained in serving the Lord; to help students in discerning truth from error; to teach fundamental skills of reading, writing, spelling, mathematics and independent study; and to provide maximum opportunities for students to participate in all phases of their learning.
These objectives are achieved through born again teachers who, through the Holy Spirit's guidance, provide study and personal application of the Bible.
Each teacher aids in the discovery and development of God-given intellectual abilities and stimulates reasoning, academic investigation, creative and critical thinking.
Our desire is to also help our students achieve emotional stability through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and to develop positive attitudes toward situations and people.
