At Calvary, an appreciation for the arts begins at a young age. Art is interwoven throughout the entire Lower School curriculum. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade participate in several performances throughout the year, giving students the chance to act and sing to celebrate holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Memorial Day.
Calvary Day students have a number of opportunities to develop fascination, appreciation, and skill in music. In the Lower School, students participate in music class by using song, movement, instruments, and various activities to develop rhythm and expression. Students begin learning to play the recorder in fourth grade. In fifth grade, students have opportunities for band, chorus, guitar and perform in the annual Georgia Day Parade each year, performing with fifes.
Burgeoning young visual arts stars are able to shine in art shows hosted by the Lower School, and dazzling gingerbread houses put on display at the Westin in downtown Savannah during the holiday season.
In the Lower School, students learn to love art in all its forms.
