I loved going here growing up. I made lifelong friends here. The teachers all care for each and every student. There are plenty of sports and clubs to join. However, that's about all they have. Once you get to college, unless you go to a Baptist college, you realize how behind Calvary is. They try to keep up on most things, but they don't have the resources and grants that public schools do. Without the resources, they do try to do their best, but just can't keep up. If you send your children here during high school, I strongly recommend they go to Heartland first before a University, so they can catch up in the math and science Calvary didn't teach them.

I give CCA five stars. The teachers, curriculum and christian atmosphere is what make CCA the best in town.

Amazing school! We transferred my son from a local public school and have had great results! CBA is a safe school where my children can get an outstanding education from very qualified and caring teachers. The best thing is that the social dillemas found in most schools are not present here...the students are respectful and friendly.

This is an AWESOME school to send your children to. The staff here really care for each child as an individual, and it shows in the childrens attitudes. I'm so blessed to have found such a great school

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
