Calvin Christian is a wonderful school with quality education and great Christian values. The teachers and staff partner with you to see your child succeed in every area. Sports, academics, music...every thing is done to the glory and honor of God. Parents can't help but get involved! My kids absolutely love it there!

When I attended Calvin Christian, the teachers were very well trained. It mentally prepared me for high school and college. The athletics are great, as it allowed many of the students to play. The school has improved in appearance since I have last seen it, and the parents become very involved in the student's education. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

My brothers and I appreciate our Calvin education. Great school that gave us a solid foundation for when we went to non-Christian colleges.
