This school dumbed down the material, as a high school student taking Marine Biology in 12th grade, I was given a biology 101 textbook and told to read the chapter on marine life. I was also taking Trigonometry before transferring to Calvary, and spent my time there with an old Trig book and no one qualified to teach it to me, so I was encouraged to try and teach myself from the book. Upon entering college I was told that my high school diploma from Calvary was unapplicable due to Calvary Academy not being an accredited school. The staff were neglectful, mean and abusive to the students. Students were broken down without being built back up. One example of this was a 12 year old girl who would pick at her face when stressed. The female staff made her wear signs on her front and back that read Confront me if you see me picking at my face . They made her wear these signs in public. Staff frequently belittled/punished the kids in ways that were harsh and unnecessary. We were treated as bad rather than human. I would not recommend this place to anyone. It took me quite a bit of time to build back up a healthy sense of self-worth and love after living in this prison for 8 months.

Terrible School, did not give the student the individual attenttion needed to overcome problems, and never got to the root of the problems. Had A cirriculm that was 'dumbed down' because this is a school for the troubled teens. It was just plain awful.

This is a wonderful school. Learn how to manage school and everyday life skills. This school has order, encourges fun yet diciplinary actions as well to every behavior.

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.
