  • Calvary Academy Ministries has been established to help troubled youth and their families.
  • The motto of our ministries is "Hope for hurting families." We firmly believe that the only real hope is Jesus Christ and His Word.
  • We are convinced that the Holy Spirit working though the Word can and will effect changes in the lives of these children and their families.
  • Our student body is small and widely diverse in economic, cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds.
  • What they do have in common is that all have experienced emotional and/or behavioral problems in the home, school, and/or community.
  • Calvary's program includes spiritual, educational and behavioral management services. All students attend daily chapel services, devotions, Bible classes and group prayers in order to develop a personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • Calvary's program provides highly structured Christian character training. Designed to manage behavior, the program includes progressive discipline, natural/logical consequences, and a level system.
