We transitioned from public elementary school to Calvary's middle school and have had a wonderful experience. Both of our students (7th and 8th grades) are flourishing here. The leadership over the middle school (and the leadership over the entire school) really cares about the students. They are taught from a biblical perspective and have chapel services once a week where they hear from local youth ministers. There are also many opportunities for them to participate in sports and the arts. Great school.

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.
