Our school is a great beginning for little minds. Your children will learn so many things. Both of my children started in our Preschool and it helped them get the phonics base that made them great readers and spellers. We are staffed with people who love what we do and the children who come here. All of our teachers have been here for over 10 years. If you want your children to learn something and be with people who care about them not just baby sit them than this is the school for you.

At Calvary Christian Preschool, our caring and committed teachers understand that small children have a natural curiosity for learning. We use the A Beka curriculum which incorporates a strong phonics base, and is designed to give a sound academic beginning for their years of learning ahead. Daily lessons are planned to meet each child s spiritual, academic, and social needs. Weekly and monthly theme activities provide enrichment and fun. The children also enjoy music, art, Bible, numbers, writing, and fun at playtime with their friends. The children attend special chapel programs during the year. We also provide a summer camp for the parents during the summer.

I love the curriculum, but have to give the school three stars due to the absolutely inflexible nature in which many of the staff interacts with the children. The younger grades are pretty good and I would rate 4-5 stars. Older grades are so rigid and inflexible it amazes me. I would rate a 1-2 primarily due to the obsessiveness with discipline to the point of not even allowing kids to talk at lunch. I'm pretty strict on my children and enforce discipline, but this school has some of the most rigid rules I've ever seen and creates a negative environment. I'm beginning to regret my decision to send my children here. I wanted a Christian School, not a Pharisee school.

I myself went to CCA when I was a child, and now my daughter attends. She has accomplished so much in just one year! Teachers are wonderful. They take an interest in each student as an individual. A+ school

CCA provided my children with an oustanding foundation using the Abeka books with dedicated trained teachers. I am so thankful that my children had the opportunity to learn at CCA.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
