The Clark Academic Center is located in the Library and Clark Academic Center, next door to the Student Life Center.

The Center is designed for all students and is ready to assist in any academic area; graduate students are also encouraged to use our services. Instead of worrying or stressing about assignments, come to the Clark Academic Center for expert help!

We provide a friendly atmosphere with tutors who really want to assist students. Our focus is on ministering to Calvary students to facilitate their academic success while providing encouragement and academic resources. Our primary specialty is providing paper editing and Turabian Style formatting for class and research essays. In addition, students may email their work for checking; tutors try to return them within 48 hours. We also help students with disabilities by offering services such as special computer software, e-books (from the library), and test or exam proctoring.

We are committed to encouraging and serving students! Come by to get academic help; study in one of our study rooms; or enjoy free cookies, coffee, tea, and candy!
