Calvary Christian School was founded in 1984 as a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church here in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Our objective is the promotion and perfection of God's image in our students resulting in their godliness of character and action.
Stated another way, it is developing the character of Christ likeness.
The Bible is the center of our Christian School curriculum.
It teachers that Christian education includes the knowledge of God and use of that knowledge in His service.
Students are taught to know God and imitate Him. Christian education, therefore, is distinctive and founded on Scripture.
