School Notes

  • Calvary Academy'sroots began in the early 1970s as a daycare until many families began requesting it be expanded to a place for kindergarten students. As more and more families started to notice issues with drugs and violence in public schools, God simultaneously started to "trouble the nest" to guide the church towards establishing a Christian schoolwhat would eventually become Calvary Academy. Since then, Calvary Academy has become a prestigious Christian school for pre-schoolthrough twelfth grade students.
