We have been a part of Calvary for 8 years. My two boys have had a wonderful learning environment here. The teachers are sincerely caring and supportive. The activities are widespread and include academics, arts and athletics. The great thing is that they work with the students to allow as much variety and individuality in extra curriculars as possible.

Calvary Christian School is a great balance for our family of academics, athletics, fine arts, extra-curricular programs and a true Christian, Bible-based education. We feel it is the best school in this area, by far.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
