Calvary Christian School is a ministry
of Calvary Baptist Church.

Welcome to the website for Calvary Christian School.  Thank you for considering us for your child’s education.  Since 1991, we have been preparing children spiritually, academically and socially to face the challenges of today and tomorrow.  We are proud to announce that we have added 12th Grade to Calvary and plan to keep growing in the coming years.   

We believe that each child is a gift from God and that each child comes with a unique set of qualities and needs, which are important.  Our teachers have many years of experience in the classroom and a great love for the students they teach.  Student-teacher ratios never exceeding 14:1 provide an exceptional environment for your child’s growth.  Teachers are able to work one-on-one with the students so they receive the time and attention they need. 

Also, Calvary Christian School is a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church.  Our church views our school as a vital ministry both to the children and their families.  At Calvary we are working hard to move our school forward in every area and welcome the support and input of our parents.  In fact, we believe the most important education your child receives is from you at home, which is why we want to be a partner with you in your child’s education.  We pray God will bless you for choosing Christian education and hope to have you join our Calvary family.

What Parents Say About Calvary Christian School:

“Calvary Christian School has been an amazing academic and spiritual experience for my two daughters. Calvary is a warm and loving environment where the children are challenged academically, socially and spiritually. The low student-teacher ratios provide excellent individualized attention. The teachers are amazing and take extra time with parents in order for the child to achieve its greatest potential. As a private school, Calvary’s tuition is affordable. Investing in your child’s education and future academics is priceless. The school has a diverse style of Christian teachings through art, music and creative play. My children come home reciting Scripture and Bible stories. We are so very blessed to have our children at Calvary Christian School. Two thumbs up and five stars!”

“Calvary Christian School offers the ideal educational environment designed to address a broad range of student needs.  The curriculum not only covers the basic education that students are expected to achieve according to grade level, but great attention is given to the social and creative needs of the students.

The teachers are dedicated and work diligently with parents to provide support and guidance to enhance the student’s overall education experience.  They assess each student’s school work and provide undivided attention to each student’s needs.  Class sizes are small enough to enable this opportunity.  Even though primary focus is placed on academics, extra-curricular activities are also woven into the learning experience in a manner that is both motivating and exciting for the students.

On a personal basis, I can say that our grandchild loves attending Calvary.  He enjoys getting up and going to school every day.  I believe that observation of the child tells all a parent needs to know about the child’s learning experience.  Our grandson has received attention for his educational needs at Calvary that we feel he would not get in public school, nor some other Christian schools where class size prohibits teachers from focusing on individual student needs.”
