    My son has been at Calvary since 4 year PreK. He’s finishing up his Sophomore year now & we absolutely love Calvary! The curriculum is challenging & the teachers & administrators truly care about the students. We’re starting to look at colleges now and the guidance counselors & teachers have done a great job of preparing him for the next step.
    My daughter LOVES Calvary Day School. As a parent, I always felt that she was safe, loved, and supported while receiving a top-notch education!
