Student Life

Student Council

Calvary Academy’s student council is a vibrant part of student life and activities.  Student council members are elected for the positions of president (8th grade), vice-president (8th grade), secretary (7th grade), treasurer (7th grade) and classroom representative (5th-8th grade homerooms).  Student council meets weekly during the junior high lunch period.

Student council hosts 4 school-wide bake sales each year, as well as pizza pop sales for 5th through 8th grade. The proceeds from these fundraisers provide for specific school needs each year.  In addition student council hosts two chapels a year, a toy drive for a local ministry in December, and a dollar drive for an international ministry in the spring. Student council also sponsors additional ministry- related activities as needs are presented.  In 2015-2016 the student council sponsored dollar jeans days to raise money for a local homeless shelter and the adoption of a special needs child from China.

Student council also promotes student life and fellowship.  Sponsored activities have included: acknowledging birthdays on the daily announcements, ugly Christmas sweater contests, classroom bible and general trivia contests, black history month contests, and daily spiritual challenges read over the announcements.  Student council also participates in the planning of Spirit Week each year.

Student council endeavors to serve the school, the community, and provide meaningful experiences to the student body. 

Pep Band

The Calvary Pep Band is a driving force of a game day experience, 'pepping' up the crowd at our homecoming Basketball game.  

School Wide Bible

School Wide Bible is an important part of Calvary life.  Every class has the opportunity to lead a School Wide Bible service giving them the chance to share on topics that are important to them and the student body. Parents are invited to our School Wide Bible services, giving them first hand experience of the impact these Friday services have on their children lives.

Missions

Giving our students the opportunities to make a difference in the life of someone else. Every class has a missions project that runs the entire year, giving our students the chance to use their gifts and talents to bless other people.  For a complete list of our mission projects at Calvary Academy click here.

Picnics

We hold two picnics a year at Calvary Academy.  The first picnic is our Back To School picnic where Calvary families come out for a day of food, fellowship and fun.  This is a great way to start our school year, giving students the opportunity to catch up and for new students to meet their peers.

Our Kindergarten Picnic is held in the spring to commemorate all their hard work througout the year.  Games are played and wonderful food is provided for our Kindergarteners and their families.  It's a day of celebrating their accomplishments and their successes in kindergarten.
