  • Following the path that God has for our Calvary Students….

    Stacey Mell Ed.S.
    As the decision of where to attend college starts weighing on your child’s mind, as well as your mind too, the best way to learn the ins and outs of a particular school is to visit. Why would one ever consider making the decision of attending a college for the next four or five years of their life without stepping foot on the campus? One might ask, “How do I set up a college visit?” One may sign up for a campus tour on the colleges website. Most schools offer tours every business day of the week, and tours typically run twice a day.  Many schools also have Preview Days.
  • What is your family looking for?

    Phillip Lee
    This is the question that I ask each family that I have the opportunity to take on a tour of Calvary’s campus. Each family has that "one thing" that they are truly searching for in a school.
  • 2019-2020 School Year

    Dr. James Taylor
    Dear Calvary Family,

    It is humbling to realize all the blessings we have experienced this past year as a school family. Campus improvement projects like the new kitchen and remodeled cafeteria; our new coffee shop, CAFE 252; the expansion of the STEM program and facility to include students in grades Pre-K through 12; and of course, the completion of our much lauded Specialty Sports Complex. In addition to our student-athletes enjoying countless victories these past three seasons, our High School Yearbook program won first in the nation for best yearbook team, and our Middle School Lego League Team travels to super-regionals after their recent regional win. Our Lower School, as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, did not rest on their laurels when expanding their Fine Arts program with amazing performances featuring vocal, dramatic, and visual arts. This pursuit of excellence across the grade levels paid dividends with the top 25% of our students scoring the highest ever SAT scores, with an average of 1350. In the spirit of Luke 2:52, we will continue to give God our best: academically, athletically, spiritually, and personally.
  • Impacting the Community

    Susan Tigert
    The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy members have been diligently working this year on their service and leadership skills. Each year, the students are tasked with creating, organizing, and executing a service project to impact the community. This year, members voted to partner with Hosana Helpers, a nonprofit organization that provides meals and Bible lessons every Sunday in Forsyth Park. In addition to Bible lessons, Hosana Helpers provides uniforms and school supplies for 100 children in need.
  • Spiritual Emphasis Week Service Mission

    Sherry Griffin
    Dear Parents:

    Spiritual Emphasis Week is a special time here at Calvary Day School. This is where our Upper School students will attend a week-long series of chapels that enables them to draw closer in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Throughout the week of January 28 - February 1, our students will hear and see how we BELONG to different groups, paths, and communities within our daily lives. Faith, Academics, and Excellence are at the heart of Calvary, but above all, we want to teach our children to be the “hands and feet of Christ” in our school, community, and world.  

    During Spiritual Emphasis Week, we are excited to partner with a local 501 c-3 nonprofit called P.A.C.K. (People of Action Caring For Kids). Among other projects, P.A.C.K. currently packs and distributes more than 6,000 bags of weekend food to kids in local schools and community programs each month. In our area, 1 in 4 children suffer from food insecurity. Calvary would like to host a packing event of our own on Thursday, January 31st. Our goal is to pack 2,500 snack bags during the week. If each student bought $8.00 worth of food items, this would allow Calvary to reach our goal. Students will be involved in every step of the process (gathering food, packing bags, making cards, and praying a special blessing over the bags).
     
    Please join us in this special project by sending in the food items listed below by January 31st for our packing event. If possible, please allow your students to help with the shopping:
    • Single serve juice boxes - 6th, 7th, and 8th grade
    • Fruit Snacks - 9th grade
    • Single serve packs of Crackers/Cookies - 10th grade
    • Granola Bars - 11th grade
    • Pop-Tarts -  12th grade
    You may also donate online by clicking here.

    Thank you for all you do to raise compassionate children. We love partnering with you! You can find out more about P.A.C.K. at packsavannah.com. Please keep Spiritual Emphasis Week in your prayers.

    Sincerely,

    Sherry Griffin

  • Eternal AND Global Impact

    Dr. James Taylor
    Spiritual Emphasis Week (SEW) is a remarkably special week set aside each year for our Middle School and High School students to be challenged spiritually toward personal growth. I am energized every year by great student stories letting me know how their lives were changed. One particular student’s life that was changed during SEW is Senior Marmda Sun. Marmda came to Calvary as a foreign exchange student from China four years ago. Marmda is an amazingly talented artist from a small island off the coast of China. Two years ago during SEW, Marmda rededicated his life to Christ. His eternity and his outlook on life changed dramatically!
  • Inaugural E-Sports Season Comes to a Close

    Johnathan Saxon
    E-sports is a collaborative sport for students where students compete in both strategic and team-based video games. These games emphasize communication between players and logical thought to overcome different situations in real time against other schools. This year Calvary fielded a team of eight players in the game League of Legends. League of Legends (LoL) consists of two five-player teams battling in a large arena. Each player selects a champion and is assigned a specific role on the map, and through communication and collaboration work together to overcome their opponents.
  • Super Regional Lego League

    Sandy Hunt
    Calvary’s FIRST Lego League Robotics team, the Legoliers, recently competed at the Central Georgia Regionals in Byron, Ga. The Legoliers, composed of eight CDS middle school students, have been meeting twice a week since September working on this year’s FIRST challenge theme, Into Orbit. The team, while focusing on the development of the core values and gracious professionalism of FIRST, excelled in the Robot Design, Programming, and Research/Project areas of judging. Their high scores from the judging presentations and their success on their Robot Missions has earned them a place in the Super-Regional Qualifier later this month at the Museum of Aviation at Robins Air Force Base. Congratulations Legoliers, and Best of Luck at Super-Regionals!
