I came to Calvary my freshman year of high school, and I can honestly say that the past four years have been the best of my life. The student body is a close family, the faculty is extremely caring and involved in the personal and academic lives of the students. The choir program is strong and growing, as well as the musicals performed every year. Calvary is a blast and I couldn't imagine a better place to go to school.

I started going to Calvary in 2015, everyone has been welcoming and friendly. After my first few days, I already had a lot of new friends and activities to participate in. This is a good school for me because I love learning and pushing myself. This school has pushed me, but also reminded me that I can do anything.

I came to calvary freshman year and did not know exactly what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with a great school, especially the focus on students growth in their faith! They have great chapel services and hire spiritually mature teachers that encourage us daily!

I've gone to Calvary for 12 years and it's like a second home. As I'm getting ready to graduate, I feel very prepared for college. As opposed to most public high schools, my teachers have focused more on getting us ready for college instead of only preparing for the ACT. I'm sad to leave my classmates, but I'm so grateful for the opportunities Calvary has blessed me with.

Our 4 daughters have been truly blessed by the training at Calvary Christian School. I highly recommend you observe the kindergarten teacher and spend time with the elementary principal Mrs. Tonya Burns. The leadership and staff are committed to training up children based on biblical principals. Plenty of opportunity for new parents to volunteer and share spiritual gifts. Making friendships for a lifetime and keeping the focus on serving others. Come by or set up an appointment and check them out you will be truly blessed.

My daughter is in 8th grade this year at Calvary and came from a public school. She absolutely LOVES it. She has made many friends and is happy there are no "cliques" that usually exist in most middle schools. She loved playing on the Volleyball team this year and she loves performing arts- and is growing in confidence. Her spiritual growth is the most apparent though. She says it has changed her life and helped her to grow closer in her walk with God.
