Our child began at Calvary in 6th grade and is now in high school. We have found the academic rigor to exceed our expectations. Graduates of this school have been accepted to Univ of Alabama, Univ of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn Univ, Univ of South Carolina, Univ of Mississippi, Baylor University, SMU, Mercer Univ, to name a few. Over 90% of each graduating class attends college, while others enter the military. We have found caring, professional Christian faculty and staff, many with advanced degrees who challenge each individual student to excel and to learn. Extracurricular activities include sports teams (football, basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball, softball, cross country, tennis, cheerleading) on the middle & high school levels, and intramural teams for the younger students. Both their choirs (offered at every grade level) and drama and literary arts departments have received regional and state awards. Various clubs are available and most are service oriented. (Spanish Club, Key Club, Natl Honor Society, Chess Club, SGA). With the inaugural middle school football team in progress, the next program slated is band. Above all, a great Christian learning environment.
