Lower School

Marianne CI would like to welcome you to Calvary’s Lower School. We are thrilled that you have decided to become part of the Calvary family. Calvary’s Lower School works with families to produce academically strong students who possess a firm faith in the Lord and a love for others.

At Calvary, your child will benefit from a rigorous curriculum that reinforces critical thinking, while experiencing Christian values woven throughout the curriculum. We want to help each child reach their fullest potential in all areas of their lives; in their minds, hearts, and lives of service. “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others” – 1 Peter 4:10.  Specialists in computers, music, art, foreign language and physical education enhance the overall academic program. As the principal, I lead a very talented group of certified professionals that provide a first-class education. Throughout this process we all remain centered on one critical goal: providing our students with academic excellence in a caring Christian environment.

Calvary’s Lower School is proud to be a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School nominee by the United States Department of Education. This distinction is awarded to only 50 private schools in the country, and it is an exceptionally rewarding accomplishment for the Calvary community. National test scores ranking in the top 10% of the country validate this superior academic program available to your child.

I hope that you experience the warmth and enthusiasm of our dynamic community of students, teachers, staff, and parents and the unparalleled curriculum and learning environment that we, at Calvary Day School, are proud to offer.
