Academic Philosophy

Calvary Episcopal Preparatory (CEP) is a community where close connections between student and teacher flourish within an advanced and accelarated curriculum. Students join the faculty in pursuing questions, not simply answers; in discovering ideas, not merely facts; and in appreciating the journey, not solely the destination.
The Calvary Way

Our talented faculty offer students support, enthusiasm, and opportunities to grow in a safe, nurturing environment. CEP students graduate with a strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and spiritual responsibility that will serve them well throughout life.

CEP aspires to graduate young men and women of integrity who will achieve their goals, serve the world, and persevere in the challenges of heart and mind. We are firmly committed to providing an education that meets the needs of the whole child, in which students can learn to think independently, analyze, and reason. Students learn in small classes and actively participate in all classroom discussions.

Students are taught at an accelerated pace beginning in prekindergarten and by the time students advance to the third grade they are instructed one full grade ahead. As a result, the average student achievement test scores are in the top 10% of the nation, four grade levels above the nation as a median score. In our middle school, over 70% of the seventh graders qualified for recognition as a Duke Talent Identification Program scholar. Sixty percent of our eighth graders are members of the National Junior Honor Society and National Honor Society.
