First of all, the faculty is wonderful. They are "called" on a spriitual level to help kids learn and grow. The academics are decent. They do seem to experience a lot of turnover in the math and science departments. English department is out of this world excellent. That said - I would never send my kids to the school I spent the majority of my childhood at. They really press kids into one path for college (there are only four colleges that are worth attending - and none of them excel academically). There is also an unfortunate amount politics based on the church you attend and whether you are related to a teacher. No room to debate politics, bible interpretation or social issues. I was taught Catholicism was a Cult. Isn't education about discussion and learning? I want my kids to have to think for themselves not go to Bob Jones boot camp.
Please ignore the libtard Troll that left the one star rating. The people at this school are super nice, and productive members of the community, unlike the hateful troll that with the one star review
The teachers at this school truly care about the children. I have a son and two daughters who attend. One daughter has dyslexia and the teachers work with her knowing her situation. Top notch school.
Class of 2009 - All American Christian Kids with a total class average ACT score of 28. I'm very pleased with the contribution this school has made to my kid's lives.
2 stars! They need to focus on not making everything about politics! Stop showing favorites of the teacher's kids!
As a former student who attended public school until 10th grade, I appreciate and recognize the dramatically different attitude of teachers and peers. The environment is ideal for those who want to learn and who want to grow spiritually. Highly recommended!
A graduate of Calvary, I am delighted to send my children to the preschool at CBA. The teaching staff is top-notch. I wouldn't entrust the care of my children to anyone else. The students are exposed to a well-rounded curriculum in a loving environment. Parents can be as envolved as they want to be. I recommend this school to everyone.
Both of my children graduated from CBA and it was a fantastic experience for both. My daughter was a good atudent and she was motivated to excell. Friends she made ther will last a lifetime. My son had academic difficulties, but teachers worked with him--he graduated from college last December. I cannot say enough about the loving spirit there. The sports and music programs are absolutely excellent. Drama is also fantastic (annual Choir-Drama Tour). Best of all is a sincere and refreshing spiritual depth of Christian values--including creationism! Highly recommended!
I am really glad for the opertunity I had to graduate from this great school. I am also greatful for the opertunity to pass this great tradtion on to my children.
A great place to entrust your children. Well rounded education, attentive teachers, and well respected leadership. I would not choose any other school in the area! I am so thankful that I was sent here. My life would have been substantially different (in my opinion - less) had I not attended Calvary.
fundemental religion, intolerance and creationism. If you value your childs intelligence aviod this school.
