    Calvary Day School Reviews

    Calvary Day School was a wonderful school for all three of my children. The academics prepared them well for their next steps and for college. My son received a significant academic scholarship from Baylor University where he has thrived. The Christian atmosphere of love, respect and an expectation of excellence supported our parenting approach during their teenage years. I believe we had more peace in our home from them being in a school full of light during their Middle School years. Calvary Day School played an integral part in the success of our children during their teenage years. This foundation is currently serving them well in college as they make good choices to live a life of significance. I highly recommend Calvary Day School!

    Calvary Day School is a wonderful, thriving school! It strives to point students toward Christ while providing an academically rigorous, Biblical-worldview curriculum. It offers athletics, fine arts, and service opportunities from a staff and faculty who are well trained in their fields and are compassionate, nurturing, and willing to invest in the students in order to encourage them to reach for their full potential. My children have attended the Day School over the past 18 years, and we have loved the influence that this school has had in their lives. Additionally, as a member of the Day School staff, it is an honor to work in such a positive place where Christ is the center of all that we do!
    Calvary is a place that I am proud to be associated with. No school is perfect, and Calvary is no exception, but the imperfections of Calvary are vastly overshadowed by the good qualities. The teachers care, the academics are challenging and push students to perform at their best, and most importantly, Calvary is Bible based/Christ centered. The things I would change are mainly minor(the food, certain activities, etc.), but overall, Calvary was a great school with a great environment, and I would recommend Calvary to anyone reading this review!
