School Reviews

I loved my time at Calvary. It was an incredible place to grow and learn; I felt supported and cared for by the staff; I grew in my faith and knowledge in a way that prepared me to excel in college; I was heavily involved in extra-curricular - all this led to my having one of the best school, especially high school, experiences!
