From Calvary Day School

Calvary Day School has been serving students and families since 1971 offering a comprehensive educational program with a Kingdom focus. Kingdom Education is the lifelong, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a student to Christ, building the student up in Christ and equipping the student to serve Christ.

Voted favorite Private School and Daycare/Early Learning school in Winston-Salem, CDS strives to accomplish this daily through academics that stimulate critical thinking from a Biblical worldview, fine arts and athletics that cultivate unique gifts and talents and enrich the student experience, and school community that brings balance to all aspects of life and learning.

Students at CDS are engaged in a love of learning from the beginning years through the last days of their seniors. CDS teaches students to acquire a deep and personal knowledge of Christ and combine that with critical thinking and problem-solving skills so they impact the world for Christ.
