I would venture to say that a lot of people would agree with the idea that middle school is one of these times of your life. During these years, kids are trying to decide who they are, what they want to be known for, and who they want to hang with. For these reasons alone, I chose to get into education at the middle school level. I feel that these students are so impressionable at this age and that with the right guidance and influence, kids can become those amazing individuals that God has planned for them to be.
Here at Calvary Day School we strive each and every day to build a Christ-centered foundation in each and every one of the young men and women that grace our hallways. We are extremely blessed and excited about the opportunity to invest in the lives of our students.

We count it a privilege to partner with your family as we raise young men and women spiritually, physically, socially, and academically. Luke 2:52

Eighth graders at Calvary Day School are one step away from joining the “big leagues” of high school, and they savor their time at the top of the middle school totem pole. However, eighth graders still enjoy the company of their peers at various middle school functions, whether at a special breakfast or the annual Spring Fling.
