My children have attended here for 7 yrs now. As soon as our son started in kindergarten he immediately made friends that to this day are very close. Everday they come home happy and share their day with us. I can't say enough great things about it. Test scores are amazing, son and daughter placed third in state for science and english in MACS. They wow the family with their Biblical knowledge and we know when they are at school they are in a safe loving Christ filled environment. Teachers go above and beyond for each child. Kids are accepted and parents are very welcomed to get involved. We are extemely pleased with CCA!!

CCA is a great place for kids! I am a graduate of CCA, a former teacher at CCA and I now have 5 children enrolled in CCA. I appreciate the emphasis on the Bible. My children are so happy to be at school--they really enjoy their teachers and get an excellent education from them. It's a very safe and nurturing enviornment for children. My kindergartener cries when she's sick--not because she feels badly, but because she'll miss seeing her teacher and friends at school. At CCA basketball games, the high school kids do fist bumps with my elementary-aged kids, which is a thrill for my little ones. Miss White, the principal, is an excellent administrator-praying for the students and working with them to grow in a godly manner. Because the classes are so small, there is not a lot of homework, which allows for family time at home. The 1-2 grade teacher has the students do their work, then corrects is on the spot, giving them immediate feedback and allowing them to correct mistakes right away, which is one of the best ways for kids to learn. When the 5-6 grade studied the assembly line, they made their own assembly line, making cars out of Juicy Fruit packs! I love this school!

My husb and I both graduated from CCA and our oldest will graduate in 2014. I love the fact that the class size is smaller, this allows for individualized attention. If a student doesn't understand something, they can raise their hand in class(and not be worried about being laughed at or judged!) and ask the teacher to explain again, or if they could give further examples, and the teachers GLADLY will oblige their request. The hallways are safe, no bullying, no cursing, no are completely safe in their school environment. Parents are always welcome on campus (after a check in at the front office, of course!!), and are welcome to speak w/the administrator or teachers at any time. Their doors are always open. The teachers are so caring and loving towards the students. They get to know each and every one of their students personally. My experience with this school has been wonderful, both from a student perspective and from a parent perspective. The feelings of comradery is like no other school I have ever been in. This school is a gem!

I graduated from Calvary Christian Academy in 2010 and now attend a Christian university. I recently had the opportunity to talk to one of my teachers from Calvary, and we soon found ourselves laughing about all of the incredible memories we have from her class. The most unique thing about CCA is the fact that students receive a Christ-centered education from teachers who truly care about them and are invested in their lives. My class at CCA became my family. We still celebrate with one another and support each other, even though we're at different colleges. I am so grateful for CCA and how it prepared me for my future. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who was looking for a school in the area.

Two of my children graduated from Calvary Christian Academy. I was very pleased with the academics and the spiritual environment. One of our CCA graduates is a year away from completing Medical School. The other graduate just finished a degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Michigan. Neither could have achieved these goals without the excellent academic preparation they received at Calvary Christian Academy. More importantly, both are walking with Jesus Christ, which is the most important result. CCA played an important role in the spiritual development of my children. I highly recommend this excellent Christian School.

Outstanding Practical Education. Over many years we have hired seven CCA graduates. These positions included clerical, accounting, AutoCAD design and engineering college students. Their performance in each of these positions consistently proved to be down to earth practical demonstrating honesty along with their excellent math, english and computer skills that are superior to other young hires over our 33 years of business. One of these CCA graduates hired in 20 years ago and after several promotions is now a Vice President and owner. As co-founder and an owner of Duckworth & Associates I am highly recommending Calvary Christian Academy.

I love this school. I graduated from Calvary Christian Academy in the 1980s. A generation later, both of my daughters have also graduated from CCA. Similar story with my sister who graduated from CCA around the time I did. Her son also graduated from CCA with one of my daughters last spring. I started out in the local public schools. After a decade, the public schools hadn't taught me much and I had no direction. I enrolled in CCA for 10th grade and was tested to see how prepared I was for their 10th grade curriculum. Testing revealed I was far behind in all subjects. In English, for example, I was prepared to begin CCA's 7th grade curriculum. Still, I entered as 10th grader and the fall semester began. After three years of commitment from CCA's faculty to get me caught up, I was definitely caught up. When I was tested during my first month at college, I was awarded first place in English, having achieved the highest score in that year's freshman class. CCA gets the credit. I could give many other reasons to choose CCA, such as the family atmosphere and challenges to grow spiritually, but I'll conclude by stating the obvious: I'd definitely encourage others to choose CCA.

Calvary Christian Academy does an excellent job of preparing students for College. Every year its students do extremely well on the ACT. CCA is the only school my kids have known. My son received a great foundation for College in all of the important academic areas and is now pursuing a degree at an academically challenging Christian College. The school administrator leads the teachers in prayer for the students each day and they all show a personal interest in the kids. Teachers are willing to take time each day to help students if they are struggling. CCA is a very positive, genuine school.

Calvary Christian Academy truly loves God and makes every effort to include God's Word into their daliy class lessons. The staff knows the students and do a great job in helping them succeed. This is not your typical school. It is tops in the way of Christian education.

My son's school is the best Christian school in the area and also the most affordable. The teachers are very caring and the school is definitely Christ-centered. Most students qualify for scholarships upon graduation.

CCA is truly a blessing for any parent wanting to send their children to a school where Christ is central. The Bible is incorporated nicely into the curriculum and I am very impressed with where my children are already at academically. My 2nd grader regularly reads 200+ page books which puts me to shame! You will have a very hard time finding teachers as committed to your kids and with Christ's sacrificial love as you get at Calvary. The investment is significant, but I can assure you is well worth the cost.

Our experience was not favorable. Test scores and stats are not available for a reason. There are many fine Christian schools in the area that out perform this school.

As a former student, I have found that CCA prepared me for what I was going to face in College and Seminary. This goes for not only the bible background but also the academics. I am very thankful for the time that each teacher spent investing in my life for my spiritual and academic growth.

The great care and love that the teachers have for each student and family.

CCA is a great school. The teachers and staff are committed to giving students a first-rate education from a Christian perspective. Not only did my kids learn how to incorporate God in their everyday lives, they always scored high in the standardized achievement tests that were given. What a great combination!

This schoold offers a Christ centered education. The teachers are always willing to give extra time for the students and parents. The academic focus and determination by great teachers to better the minds of our young people, makes this the best choice in our area for parents who want the best for their children.

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.
