Requirements

Calvary's desire is to cultivate the personal, spiritual, and academic growth of men and women in preparing them for Christian service. Each applicant to Calvary is asked to confirm by personal action and written testimony, that he trusts the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, that he is living a life of commendable Christian character, and that he has a desire to serve God.

Those who have been recently saved may be requested to be mentored by a godly pastor for a year before official acceptance. This would involve participation in and/or attendance at regular church services and functions.

Students who enroll at Calvary possess a foundational understanding of the Holy Scriptures as well as Calvary's Statement of Faith and Convictions. This is accomplished by satisfactory completion of 29 credit hours of Bible and Theology.

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Calvary's minimum grade point average requirement for high school and college is a 2.0.

ACT/SAT

Each applicant to Calvary is required to take the American College Testing Program (ACT) test or the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
