  • Calvary Christian Academy Preschool is wonderful. I would recommend this school to any parent who wants the best beginning foundation for their child. My son has attended Calvary since age 3 and will be in Kindergarten next year. You can't find a more loving and nurturing teacher than Ms. Monnin.
    I can't give these ladies enough praise for teaching the children to respect each other and to be kind to one another. All of the teachers, assistant teachers and principal truly care about your child and want what’s best for them. As a first time parent putting my child into schools I couldn't have asked god for such a safe and loving environment for my child to get his education.

  • Calvary Christian Academy is a great school. I've been attending since i was in kindergarten. I went to public school for eighth grade and i think it was the worst decision i have ever made. CCA has a good Christian based curriculum. And the teachers are awesome. Everyone is so nice there. Sure the teachers may be strict sometimes but they're trying to push us to do our absolute best. If you want ur child to have a good Christian education send them to Calvary Christian Academy!

  • I think CCA is a great school. All the teachers are so nice and they push you to do your best. I went to public school for half of eighth grade and i didn't like it. I'm starting the school year this year at Calvary. I want to have a good Christian education and i think choosing Calvary over public school will be one of the best decisions i will ever do.

  • I have attended this school for 3 years now and it really is a wonderful school. Sure, it's not perfect, but you'll never find a perfect school anywhere here on earth. The teachers truly do love the students and do as much as they can for them. The whole staff does. Still, we do not have a perfect school, and just this year God has called some of our teachers to leave and do other things and our school is working on projects that require quite a bit of money. Please, instead of complaining about our school, pray that the Lord will bring us the right teachers and the necessary money and will change our school for the better.

  • Ok, I have been attending Calvary for 10, now going on 11, years. I believe it is an excellent school. The teachers are excellent and, even though they are strict, they are preparing us for life. The Bible teachings are excellent. In some of the Bible classes that I have been in at Calvary, we went into very intelligent discussions about the Bible. The student body is great. I would not like to leave this school because it is so great. If you are looking for quality Bible teaching, then enroll at Calvary Christian Academy! GO CCA PATRIOTS!

  • ok i went to this school recently and i am enraged that you people would say such things though i may be fourteen i know this school inside and out and that school was one of the best things that happened to me and the only reason i left was because i did not have the funds to continue my education there and though the teachers are strict and give homework does in no way make it a bad school in any way in fact i think it does wonders for the kids that attend CCA

  • I believe that Calvary Christian Academy is a great school. They teach the truth about God and the Bible. The teachings in all classes are top notch. They have extrordinary teachers. If you want your child to receive a quality education and to learn about God and the Bible, send your child to Calvary Christian Academy.

  • When I enrolled my child in Calvary, I expected and prayed for a great, christian experience. We had recently taken our child out of a public school. Although the violence, bad language, and overall crude nature of the world was diminished; the methods that the teachers used were unacceptable. I am a born again believer and I would not recommend anyone send their child to Calvary. Rather than teaching the truth of God's divine Word, the teachers speak their opinion. Also, many of the speakers that preach at the chapels demean other religions that differ from the Baptist faith. On one occasion, the Bible Teacher said, "Now if a Catholic repented and became a Baptist, they would not burn in hell." The way to teach a child is not frighten them or scare them to believe, but rather to teach them what the consequences will be of their actions; and allow them to make their own decision. Also, the most devastating thing is the care of the mentally slower children. They are grouped with the normal kids, and this, in turn slows the whole class down. Instead, they should give the children that are slower a bit more specialized attention, and help them along. Not hurt them and the other kids. I was not impressed with Calvary's preformance in any way, and that is why I am writing this review.

  • This school is the worst school I have EVER put my child in. The title should not be Calvary CHRISTIAN Academy. This school is very judgmental. The slower students and students with disabilities are not separated from the other students. Therefore, the class moved at a slower pace. The teachers teach OPINIONS rather than facts. The Bible classes are based on what the teachers think is right, not was truly is right by the Bible. If you are looking for a good, solid christian school for your child, I recommend Rocky Bayou located in Niceville. It is an excellent school.
