About Our School - A Philosophy of Success
Reverence, Respect and Responsibility are the 3 R’s that are integrated in class assignments, relationships with teachers and classmates, and in the chapel experience. While outstanding academics are a trademark for Calvary’s reputation of excellence, our pride as a Christian school is how we treat each other and grow in our understanding of God's expectations for us.
Our faculty and staff nurture the concept of “family,” and understand that for a child to be successful in today’s world the home and school must form a partnership, respecting the important and distinctive role that each serves, yet recognizing the necessity to work toward common goals. Involved parents are vital to our students’ success.
We have found that children achieve success when the bar is set high. Consequently, our students typically perform well above the national norm on achievement tests. Through effective communication, encouraging parent involvement through volunteerism and high expectations, our students excel in and outside the classroom.
We educate the “whole child” knowing that a well-rounded educational experience includes hands-on learning. Our students enjoy field trips, and activity-oriented lessons that are fast passed and accelerated. The Calvary experience includes Bible class, 3 day-a-week chapel, physical education, music/choir, theater arts, band, art, Spanish, library lessons, and computer instruction.
Calvary consistently wins “District” at the Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) academic meet, where our students compete against other private schools in math, spelling, oratory, science, music, map skills, art and other contests. Our middle school athletics, which starts in grade 6, offers students an opportunity to be part of a team that values individual abilities and celebrates competition and sportsmanship. Calvary teams consistently win the West Houston Christian Athletic Conference (WHCAC) championships in football, volleyball, basketball, track, tennis and golf.
All students, regardless of the grade level attend Bible classes, and are taught Christian Character Education and the seven pillars of character: Reverence, Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Additionally, service learning is a part of all grade levels, and all students participate in at least one service project that focuses on service to the community. Our well-rounded students leave CEP prepared academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally for the challenges of today's world.
