My son is completing his second year at Calvary Prep and it has been a very positive experience. They are there to help and ensure my son successfully finishes high school ready to enter college. I recommend Calvary Prep!

My daughter had attended a private school and public school prior to attending Calvary Prep for her junior year. She found the curriculum to be more challenging than either of her prior schools. She got a lot of support from her teacher and tutoring when needed. She loved the flexibility and accountability of the online program. She did very well on her ACT and we feel this program has prepared her very well for college and she will continue with Calvary Prep for her senior year. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for an online Christian program.

My son has been homeschooled since Kindergarten. The fall of 2019, my son David took three tenth grade classes; Literature, Spanis 1 and Geometry at Calvary Prep Academy. David thrived in the classes and loved the curriculum. He enjoyed his teachers as well. David stated, " Mrs. Arriaga teaches with kindness and compassion and explains things well. I look forward to our weekly meetings as she is positive and encouraging. Mr. Richie is an intelligent, humorous teacher who genuinely cares for me and always asks how I am doing in school. I love Calvary Prep Academy and am excited to take classes in the fall." My husband and I are very happy that David loves Calvary Prep and feel that the classes offered will help him in his aspirations to be a Marine Biologist. Most of all, we are thankful that the teachers are Christians and good examples for David. The Bible says, " a student will become like his/her teacher.

My daughter has been with Calvary for Two Years and will continue with her Grade 10 this fall. We love the programs offered including the summer school. We cannot say enough praise for the teachers and their care towards the student. The teachers and their continued support have helped grow and challenge our daughter on a daily basis and she loves going to school! So Thank You to Calvary Preparatory Academy.

Our children have done very well with the structured environment at Calvary Online. They transitioned from a very structured Japanese educational system to an English online system. The structured approach and helpful advice from their teachers has been a perfect match.

My daughter took both semesters of Spanish 2 last summer online and loved it! The teacher was fantastic! Their interaction via video chat was very helpful and always positive. I am very happy with the content that was taught in such a short amount of time (8 weeks).

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
