Enrollment Procedures

New enrollment begins with a private interview with a member of our administration.  This meeting allows you the opportunity to learn more about partnering with Calvary Academy for your student's education and allows us to get to know you and your student.  Complete this form to schedule your private interview.  A link to our online application, handbook, and financial information will be provided to you during this appointment.  All paperwork must be completed and submitted online before a decision will be made regarding enrollment. 

The administration will review all applications and determine whether academic testing is necessary before admission. 

All applications are reviewed by a member of our administration.  After transcripts are received from the applicant's current school, additional testing may be required.  All 6th- to 12th-grade applicants will be scheduled for a phone or in-person interview with a member of our administration.  Once acceptance is determined, you will receive an email including the steps to complete enrollment.
