Calvary Academy provides students with a journey.  Each journey is different.  How you "get there" defines who you are.  Students at Calvary Academy develop their own ideas, explore diverse perspectives, and embrace their Christianity, take risks, sometimes fail, but always learn. 

Students strive for personal excellence, extension of self-confidence, development of strong study skills, and demonstration of respect and responsibility toward themselves and others as they mature in their relationship with God.

Academics

At Calvary Academy, students are immersed in a liberal arts curriculum preparing them course-by-course for college and the world.  Our teachers provide a balance of traditional education and contemporary approaches with hands-on experiences. 

Faith and intellect blend to cultivate the creative integration of faith that leads to an understanding of a Biblical perspective. 

Curriculum

Spiritual Life

Our commitment to Christian education permeates all that we do and everything that we strive to accomplish while helping our students develop a genuine relationship with Christ.  Biblical truths are integrated within the curriculum through every grade, which enables our students to understand their world from a Christian perspective. 

Participation in Bible instruction and service opportunities, considered critical aspects of discipleship training, promotes Christian maturity as our students develop a sense of commitment to the broader community. 

Students at the high school level are given opportunities to build a life-long relationship with Christ through activities such as:

  • Weekly Chapels

  • Spiritual Emphasis Week

  • Community Service Projects

  • Missions Trip

  • Praise & Worship

Social Life

Embedded and entwined in the Christ-centered academic environment is a guided watchfulness over the social-emotional growth of each student. Relationships are developed and friendships forged for a lifetime.

Trust is the unquestioned element providing the foundation for caring, mentoring, and spiritual discipleship as open and receptive relationships are developed between faculty and students.

 Social Activities that are available to students are:  

  • Clubs

  • High School Field Trips

  • Retreats

    Athletics

  • Music Lessons
