Athletic Teams

Calvary Day School’s teams compete mostly in Region 3-A. Volleyball and soccer both compete in an area split between (A) and (AA) programs, per GHSA.


Calvary Day School’s Athletic Philosophy


Our program provides an excellent arena for students to grow physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. As members of the Christian body, we value the importance of individuals working together for a common goal. No matter one’s role in athletics—coach, athlete, spectator, scorekeeper, manager, or volunteer—all must put on the mind of Christ. Philippians 2:1-5 commands us to be united in spirit, united in purpose, and united in love. We consider others before ourselves in humility, and we demonstrate Christ-like attitudes and behaviors. We desire to labor together as a team that glorifies God, encourages each other in physical and spiritual growth, and exudes Christ’s love to all whom we encounter.


Calvary Day School offers a variety of Athletic programs for our students.
