We are a small school with big opportunities to learn and to serve in God’s Kingdom. Calvin Christian provides Christ-centered, student-focused, and engaged learning — we are a great place for students to find community — as we offer many opportunities for students in arts, in athletics, and in a variety of student clubs. Our mission is loving, learning, serving. We strive to teach students to know God and His world through Christ-centered education in order to serve Him in today’s society and we encourage students to use their God given gifts in the classroom, in chapel, on the field, in the gym, on stage and in all the other ways that God will lead them.

Calvin’s academic success is excellent—achieving a 24.3 composite ACT score this past year—the highest among area Christian schools. Calvin Christian High School class of 2017 saw a graduation rate of 100%, with 96% of our graduating class are continuing their education in college. Almost all staff members have or are pursuing advanced degrees in education or their respective discipline.
Calvin’s excellent Educational Support specialists strive to meet the needs of all students, while all teachers participate in a student support team that monitors all students’ progress and responds to their individual needs. Our small school size allows us to meet the needs of individual students, building close relationships and getting to know each learner.
In 2014, the high school launched a 1:1 laptop initiative—allowing students to gain 21st century digital media literacy and to connect and collaborate in meaningful projects, both on campus and across the globe. AP, concurrent enrollment, online and STEM courses are available on campus as well.
We are blessed with a student population of 362 this year; 13 of those students are international students from China, South Korea, Ethiopia, Thailand, and Hungary. Our International Club offers a chance for American and international students to fellowship and learn from one another through many social events. In addition, Calvin Christian students travel to Kenya, Spain, Canada and Guatemala. In addition to international travel opportunities, students have opportunities to travel domestically to New York City and Washington DC as well.
We offer a variety of experiences outside of the classroom such as: Drama, Improv, Quiz Bowl, Model UN, Marching and Praise Band. Calvin students participate in Newspaper, Caving, Chess, Math, and Fishing Clubs.
We are committed to walk with all students as they discover the gifts that God has given them, and to challenge them to use these gifts to serve the world now and always. At Calvin Christian we encourage students’ spiritual growth through seamless faith integration in each content area, through meaningful and formative worship in chapel, and through service projects that not only offer service to the larger world but also from our students to be servants of Christ. Teachers challenge students academically by using 21st century teaching pedagogies and differentiating instruction to help all students grow to their full potential.
In the past four years the Calvin athletic teams have achieved 31 conference championships, 5 state championships, and 64 students have achieved the status of All-State. Calvin Christian coaches and teams focus on growing spiritually and giving all the glory to God.
Robust Programming, Leadership & Service Opportunities
Calvin has an exceptional drama program, which produces two excellent shows each year. The band, choir and orchestra always receive top ratings at competitions. The student council provides leadership in fundraising, welcoming new students, social events, and in leading chapels. Calvin also gives students regular opportunities to get involved in service projects at its Student Life Center during Spiritual Encouragement Week — where meaningful chapels help students grow in their faith.
