Calvary Christian School, in partnership with the family, exists to encourage students to accept Christ as Savior and Lord; develop a Biblical worldview; attain their individual academic excellence; and fulfill their God-given responsibilities in the home, church, and community. We follow the example set in Luke 2:52: to help young men and women “grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Welcome to Calvary Christian School - Home of the Calvary Knights!
Why Knights? There is perhaps no better model on earth for our sons and daughters to emulate than the character, dignity, and discipline of those who laid aside all other pursuits and comforts for the opportunity to align with, defend, and bring glory to their king. As children of the King of kings and Lord of lords we train ourselves and our children to follow the Knight’s Code (**):
LIVE PURE! At all times we seek to ‘set apart’ our mind and heart; set apart so that our lives and our reputations are unencumbered by the stain of sin and regret.
SPEAK TRUTH! Trust is built, relationships are transformed, communities are stronger, and God is honored when it is our habit and our reputation that we, the Knights of Calvary, speak the truth in love.
RIGHT WRONG! There is no shortage of wrongdoings: wrongs in our own lives as fallen souls who are saved by grace and in the world around us. Our world is still cursed by sin and still striving against the loving call of a just and gracious Heavenly Father. A Knight stands up for the oppressed, protects the helpless, and does all he can to reverse a culture steeped in darkness by insisting on righteous acts in himself and in those over whom he has influence.
FOLLOW THE KING! Jesus Christ our Lord, Son of the Almighty God, is the only One worthy of our allegiance, the only One worthy of a life of sacrifice and consecration. So we look into His Word, we follow His example He set while He was on earth, and we make our community just a little better each day by influencing others, as many as we possibly can, to follow Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Word of God is our source of all truth, and our guide for daily living. The Knight’s Code provides for our kids and for ourselves a succinct ideal which aligns with God’s Word and raises our expectations for ourselves and the generations to come who will walk through our halls. We invite you to join the Calvary Knights movement.
