Calvary Academy

  • 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.
