The Mission Statement of Calvary Episcopal Preparatory is not just a grouping of words: “Calvary Episcopal Preparatory provides superior education while inspiring Reverence for God, Respect for others, and Responsibility for self.” Our faculty and staff nurture the concept of “family,” and understand that for a child to be successful in today’s world the home and school must form a partnership, respecting the important and distinctive role that each serves, yet recognizing the necessity to work toward common goals. Involved parents are vital to our students’ success. We have also found that children achieve success when the bar is set high. Consequently, our students typically perform well above the national norm on achievement tests. Through effective communication, encouraging parent involvement through volunteerism and high expectations, our students excel in and outside the classroom. All students, regardless of the grade level attend Bible classes, and are taught Christian Character Education and the seven pillars of character: Reverence, Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Additionally, service learning is a part of all grade levels, and all students participate in at least one service project that focuses on service to the community. Our well-rounded students leave CEP prepared academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally for the challenges of today’s world.
