Calvary Baptist School is a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church of New Orleans that offers students an affordable private, Christian education. Founded in 1982, Calvary Baptist School began its first year of operation as a Preschool, adding a grade level each year thereafter. Today, the school proudly serves students in Preschool thru 8th grade. You can read our welcome letter from Michael Carney here.
As a Christian school, it is our mission to assist parents in educating their children by conveying God’s truth physically, emotionally, and academically in order for each child to make Godly choices.
We, The Calvary Baptist School, see ourselves as a leading Christian school, which successfully implements 21st Century learning skills in a deliberately Christian environment that is shaped and governed by God. Our administration, faculty and staff, with the support of the pastor, staff and membership of Calvary Baptist Church seek through prayer to help our students acquire knowledge in order to have Christ-like discipline and service.
