Our Mission

Calvary Day School offers a Christ-centered educational experience through the development of the total student - spiritually, academically, socially, and physically.
Our key verse at Calvary Day School is Luke 2:52, which states: “So Jesus grew both in height and in wisdom, and he was loved by God and by all who knew him.” On the surface, this is a nice Bible verse coined at numerous Christian schools across North America. However, for the Administration and educators of Calvary, this verse is a presentation of the guiding force behind everything we do. This verse encompasses the four components of a truly Christian philosophy of education: physical growth, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, and social/interpersonal growth. Many schools call themselves “Christian” simply because they offer a class in Bible at some point in their curriculum. I would assert that this course offering alone does not form the basis for a Christian philosophy of education. Instead, a truly Christian philosophy of education is achieved when biblical truth forms the basis for everything that is taught.

Our Vision Statement

Calvary Day School will cultivate in our students a lifelong passion to learn, lead, and serve through Christ-centered college-preparatory educational excellence. 

A Sound Christian Philosophy

Having a sound Christian philosophy of education cannot be emphasized enough in the Christian school setting. Biblical truth must provide more than theoretical guidance and academic generalization. Educational theory and practice must be completely enmeshed with a Christocentric worldview. This distinct worldview becomes the integrating factor around which all subject matter is correlated and arranged, and it provides the criterion by which all other subject matter is judged. Biblical truth becomes the center of all that we do as a school ministry.
At Calvary Day School we will:
  • Create an environment that encourages students, faculty, staff and families to develop and live out their relationship with Jesus Christ;
  • Develop a passion for lifelong learning through excellence, intentional curriculum and extra-curricular offerings;
  • Empower mission driven faculty and staff to use their passions and expertise to create engaged critical thinkers;
  • Foster an exceptional environment that develops students’ God-given gifts and talents in the arts, athletics, leadership, and additional extra-curricular opportunities for God’s purposes;
  • Build an engaged school community – encompassing faculty, staff, students, families, alumni, and donors – that reinforces the school’s vision, mission and core values.
