The real quandary for me is that many educational researchers believe that schools must choose. Many educational philosophers contend there cannot be schools pursuing both environment and results. Is this true?
At Calvary, we believe that a great school must pursue both sides of this coin—a family environment where students are loved, encouraged, and developed to pursue the perfect plan that God intends for their lives, as well as a rigorous academic environment where students are challenged to achieve ever-greater levels of academic knowledge and application. Calvary firmly believes that these two goals are not mutually exclusive. Our key verse, Luke 2:52, demonstrates that our students develop as Jesus did- intellectually, spiritually, physically, and interpersonally.
What an enormous blessing it is to be part of a school that is successfully pursuing both an unabashedly Christian environment and rigorous academics that fully prepare our students for their futures. We eagerly look forward to the blessings God has in store for our school this upcoming year.
