Like the other review this was our first year at Calvary and I can not thank them enough for welcoming my son and mentoring him. I am grateful that they have male role models in leadership and teachers. They put Christ before academics which encouraged my son as a freshman to transform. Anyone looking for a Christian education, caring teachers, and students with loving families, you should try Calvary. My son said he was impressed that the teachers were more concerned with him actually learning than doing the work and getting good grades. As an educator myself I am a huge fan of CCS!

I can't say enough good things about this school. My son came in as a transfer, mid-year, and the staff and students did everything possible to ensure a smooth transfer, including making him feel welcomed and accepted. Since transferring, my son is receiving a great education, lots of personal attention due to the small class sizes, and most importantly, is able to learn in a Christ-centered environment with each of the teachers and staff not only doing their job as educators, but also as mentors. This school is a hidden gem for anyone looking for a loving and Christian environment for their child. I am so thankful that we found this school.
