Our three kids have been in the school since elementary school. Two are now in middle school and one is in high school. The politics at the school are out of control. The kids of the parents that give the most money get preferrential treatment. This is a large school. There are many pastors, administrators and teachers with children in the school. Their kids receive much favoritism in the sports programs. The kids that show up on time to practice, put forth the most effort and demonstrate the best ability should make the teams and receive the most playing time. This is far from the truth here. We are removing our kids after this school year. We don't feel comfortable giving any more money to this school. They preach one thing and then don't follow through with their actions. Ultimately God will be the judge. I can only pray for them.
My wife and I heard very mixed reviews before enrolling our children in Calvary Christian Academy. We decided to give the school the benefit of the doubt. None the less, we are very disappointed. Many of the school pastors, administrators and teachers are very pompous and rightous. They think they are an extension of God and judge others very harshly. I'm not a pastor or an expert on the word of God. Although, doesn't God say 'Judge youself before you judge others?" I hope they will "see the light" and change their ways.
My son has attended here since second grade. The school is a full on family blessing. The coaches,teachers,principals and staff are true mentors. When entering the campus, a true peace is felt every time. The facility is safe,loving and real in its misson to make men and women of Jesus.
An absolutely INCREDIBLE experience to attend there. Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere from the classrooms to peers and teachers. State of the art technology, fabulous teachers that truly work with us kids, an exceptional campus that you want to practically live on! I have been given nothing but the best at CCA. The Christ/fath-based everything is just the cherry on top!!! There is not an unkind word to say about this wonderful place. From chapel to small groups and even test-taking, we pray before everything, and everything is just GREAT! I love this school. Its the best place in the world. I cannot imagine anyone that would not have an amazing educational and social experience here.
my child has been attending for 10 years and loves every minute of it. and it's a great social scene for teens
This school is a huge blessing academically and spiritually. The teachers and staff are wonderful and we look forward to seeing our 2 girls through from preK to 12.
cca is the best school ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you would be crazy to not want to come here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! trust me, i havent complained once about it and ive been here for 7 years!
its a great school. My child has been attending for awhile now. He is doing great and a lot of loving people. The teachers are great. They have great academics.
My Children have been going to this school since kindergarten, one in 3rd and one in 7th. They love Calvary so much. They dont want to go to any other school. The teaching about our Savior is the best. My children love the Lord and learning about about him.
My son just started attending CCA this school year. Our experience has been outstanding. Our Pre-K teacher is without a doubt the type of teacher that any parent would want for their child. We feel very blessed with this school and our son' s teacher.
Calvary, Where do you start? Top notch academics, Teachers whom truly love your child, children that are growing in GODS word. A growing and prosperous athletic program. With out a doubt the place to have your child become a Godly man or women. Bye the way they want the parents to be involved, what a novelty. This school is well worth the wait and red tape to get in.
I have a son in the Varying Exceptionalities program and I have found the staff, both administration and teachers (and teacher's aide) to be excellent. They have been very understanding of his disabilities (deaf and autistic)and the problems that arise and have provided not only a loving and godly atmosphere but also an environment where he loves to learn. I must say that on the whole, the student body has also been very supportive. Students have even come up to say 'hi' to him in a department store. To know that he is not only loved by those who are in authority but by his peers is a wonderful feeling.
L-O-V-E this school! A LOT of red tape in the beginning, but definitely worth the effort. Loving and competent teachers, excellent academic curriculum, great extra-curricular activities, all the electives you could want, parental involvement encouraged. And most importantly, solid, consistent biblical education involving the whole child. Oh, and did I mention the very reasonable tuition? A true blessing.
Excellent academics, excellent music, sports, and Spanish. Beware though, if you don't live your life 'according to CCA', if you have an opinion that can't be quoted from The Bible, you will be shunned, not by all, by definitely by most.
Both my children have gone to CCA since pre school. All kids are encouraged to do their personal best as well as be love, kind, diligent and knowlegeable about Jesus. The teachers are highly skilled, personable and very organized. CCA loves to have parents involvement. The principals is kind and knows each child by name. There are 3 principals and all of them are great example of a leaders! My children are at least one year ahead of their public school friends. CCA encouragement them to be the best which helps build thier confidence for their future careers.
This is a great school. It is strong in academics, the arts, sports and especially Christian discipleship.
Calvary Christian Academy offers a great christian education as well as great extracurricular sports and activities. Calvary is able to offer some of the best in teaching extras and aides. They keep a child focus upward. while teahcing them inward.
Fantastic Christ-centered school. Top notch academics and facility. Staff is loving and godly, fostering a love of Christ in every student. We were so blessed to be accepted and feel we have found our home. Volunteering is welcomed and encouraged.
Wonderful school with all around education, development, and care in a nurturing environment. Awesome extracurricular activities.
Great Solid Christian theological values! As the name implies, this school starts with Christ as the center, and builds a solid educational foundation out from there. This may be a somewhat new school, but the foundation is 2000 years strong and they seem to be always working toward excellence for our children. Calvary Christian Academy encourages active parental involvement both inside and outside the school walls. We cannot put a price on the value of the partnership of this school with our family. God willing plan to continue providing our children with this caliber of Christian Education through CCA Ft. Lauderdale. We pray Gods blessings on the staff and all who are actively involved both physically and financially. Oct. 2004
