Characterized by college preparatory curricula, Calvary Christian School has the ministry of equipping students with the necessary skills and content to help your child start to realize their full God-given potential. The high academic expectations for the child set in a Christian environment enhance student learning.
The elementary program effectively prepares students with a spiritual foundation to love God, love others, use the Bible, and understand that God has created every person to glorify Him.
We are blessed with Christian teachers who are creative, caring, and certified in their area of teaching. They create a classroom environment that encourages students to explore new learning, feel safe and secure, treat others with respect, and know that Jesus loves them.
Our elementary program includes first through sixth grades.
