High School at Calvary

High School at Calvary

Small School....BIG Benefits

At Calvary Episcopal Preparatory, there are lots of benefits to being a small high school.  We celebrate that our students are...

Known, so they feel valued.

Protected, so they feel safe.

Listened to, so they feel heard.

Challenged, so they find passion.

Involved, so they feel connected.

Prepared, so they gain confidence.

Celebrated, so they model appreciation.

Empowered, so they develop independence.
