  • Chick-fil-A Leader Academy

    Calvary Day School partners with Chick-fil-A and Coca Cola to be a part of the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy and their Impact through Action program. Calvary joins 20,000 students in over 30 states in this yearlong program. Students meet once a month to begin developing and honing their leadership capabilities to be leaders in their schools, communities, and the world. Each semester they design and implement an outreach service project that makes a difference in our community.  The Leader Academy gives each of these students an opportunity to grow in their personal faith while serving others. 1 Peter 4:10 tells us that “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

  • Student Ambassadors

    Throughout one’s time in high school, there are many ways for students to be involved, but how many students truly take the opportunity to tackle leadership roles that take them out of their comfort zone? When we take a closer look at the people who impact our world in a positive manner, those people are leaders in some capacity. This doesn’t necessarily mean the person is a speaker in front of thousands or holds a political position. Leaders take on many shapes and forms, and so many times the truly effective leaders who make the most impact on lives are the ones who are behind the scenes. Student Ambassadors are group leaders for our new students that come into Calvary. Student Ambassadors are to be an extension of Christ’s hand to those who feel left out, scared, and unsure of the new surroundings they have been placed in. It is more than just New Student Orientation and giving tours - it is the hallway, the lunchroom, and even the weekends. This is a fairly new program but we have seen great success with our new students quickly becoming part of the Calvary family thanks to our Student Ambassadors.
     
  • Student Life

    “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” This verse from Proverbs expresses the focus of Calvary’s newly formed Student Life Committee. These student leaders recognize that a focus on excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts is good, but it is a powerful spiritual focus and a positive social element combined with educational excellence that turns good into great, building the type of family that Calvary has become.

    The Student Life Committee is a group of motivated and hard-working students who have come together with the specific purpose of building and maintaining Christ-centered community among the students.

    They help organize and lead chapels, and along the way, are learning the art of building worship services through corporate prayer and an intentional focus on bringing the Calvary family into the presence of Christ.

    They are learning advertising, marketing, and business skills as they plan such monthly activities as Capture the Flag, Trivia, A Black Tie Affair, Ropes Course trips for each grade, and other events to engage and bind our student community.

    They serve on the planning committee for bigger events such as Spiritual Emphasis Week, the New Year’s Eve trip to Universal and Island of Adventure, as well as our Spring Break trip to Ridgecrest.

    They organize service events, fundraisers, and opportunities to simply allow Calvary to be Christ in our community. They plan luncheons, design t-shirts, create stickers, and recruit other student leaders who are willing to learn how to serve.

    These are really great kids who desire to bring positive change to our school and are taking action to see it happen. I see them doing great things here already: today the school; tomorrow the world.
     
  • Student Travel

    There are so many important facets to a well-rounded education, and I believe that travel experiences are a key component. It is so critical to provide students an opportunity to see history, culture, and science come off the pages of textbooks. In a 2013 article in the Huffington Post, Karen Rodriguez explains the many benefits of student travel: “You will learn so much more than you do from a textbook, or from a class lecture, or from taking test after test with minimal sleep. Through travel, you have the opportunity to see first-hand the things you’ve learned, to put into practice the skills you’ve acquired. You gain a global perspective and a strong independence that no other teaching method can impart.”
     
    Calvary Upper School students are given many opportunities to travel with their peers and mentors. As students go through their middle school and high school years we highly encourage all families to make travel a priority. Impress upon your student the need to see the world outside of our city - even to experience the great history and culture of our great city.  Going and doing makes life more meaningful. God’s creativity and love for beauty is so evident throughout our world; let’s not see it just on a page in a book or on a screen.
