My experience at Calvary is one of the reasons on who I am today. With being a small school especially with one campus just for 7th-12th graders, It gave an opportunity to the younger ones under your wing. The school shaped taught me how a strong personality with integrity, character, and trust will take me so far in life. With having a small school it was so easy to have such a one-on-one relationship with your teacher especially if you had questions. The change I would like to see is just having more activities outside of school for the kids to do. One of the things I saw was when I kid participated on like a sports team, drama club or anything, they really found who they are as a person.
My two older daughters attended CCA and my 11 yr old is currently in 5th grade! I cannot say enough about this school/organization. They value education and character development. They care about my children. They focus on every aspect of the kids well being so that they are fully rounded individuals...mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Thank God for CCA!
If you want to coast through high school and only learn about God this is the school for you. The teachers love going outside during class hours and just walking around the building with their classes and if they cant go outside they go to the gym where they go play sports and just play around. But if your child wants to play sports, Calvary's hand book says that your child needs a C but because they care more about you, they wont let you play unless you have a B and meet their standards. Also their walls don't go all the way up to the ceiling so you can hear other students talk bad about your child. As well as their dress code is to strict and they are very strict about the smallest things. But the administration is very good knowing that the high school and the elementary principles care very much about the students.
I believe Calvary Christian Academy is an overall very well rounded school. Faculty and students are well mannered and respectful. The environment in which we learn in is very home like, and comfortable. The love centered school, gives a loving peaceful vibe, and its easy to find a teacher to lean on, as a student, when in a troubling situation. However, the only complaint would be the walls, which are not fully connected to the ceiling, and also the lack of extra curriculars and sports. However, with the adults willing to always help students, there are arrangements to overcome these weakness, starting with online classes, and advanced. Regarding the sports situation, there's always travel groups and Delaware teams outside of school to join. The school also has a lot of community service time dedication, and it's very easy to get connected to help others, and collect hours for better experience. In coming to a conclusion, I assuredly can say I would suggest coming to Calvary.
Excellent academically. Teaches biblical truth, character, and integrity. Their classroom size is perfect and all teachers are very well educated, many with masters and doctorate degrees. They care and love the students as their own. All students that graduate from Calvary are way beyond ready for college. Many have received full scholarships from many institutions.
The teachers are very knowledgeable in their field. They actually care about you and are commited to your success. Their care is unparalled to any other school I know. The tutoring services are proficient and accessible. I was also able to complete six college credits/elec give a in my high school career. The school resources are limited. Public schools do have better equipment. The building is small compared to other high schools in the area. Calvary's clubs and activities are very few because of their limited resources. However, the culture of the school is very welcoming. Overall, I valued the connections I made there and enjoyed my experience, despite the varied shortcommings of the school. I felt confident of my academic ability from my education at Calvary Christian Academy.
The staff at CCA provides a welcoming and friendly family atmosphere. The student / teacher ratio makes for a positive and productive learning environment. One fact that I love is that all of the teachers no matter what grade they teach invest the time to get to know every student. As they move between grades the relationship and bond carries and grows from year to year. The administration always strives to provide students with the most advanced and up to date academic and christian based material. My son is more well rounded due to CCA than any public school could provide.
They are like a family at Calvary Christian Academy. they have great teachers! The school gets you prepared and ready for college courses and helps with anything you need. There is a community atmosphere and everyone is there to help out each other. I feel my education and overall personality and future would not have been the same if I had not gone to Calvary Christian Academy. They made a huge difference in my life.
Growing up, I never quite fit in anywhere else, but when I enrolled into CCA, I felt like I was in the right place. Although it is a very tiny school, it made it more like a family than a competition. Bullying wasn't much of a problem because I always felt safe around my teachers and peers. I am always able to approach the situation without a problem and solve the issue. I learned a lot in many aspects of life.
I have had great experience at Calvary Christian Academy. My teachers are wonderful. They have a great choice of sports available to all students. There are also dual enrollment and advanced course opportunities.
The environment is good, but academics always seem to come second. However, the teachers really do care and will help you succeed.
Great school. The teachers are really invested in the students. Small class sizes allow for specialized and focused attention to the students. I will truly miss this school.
