Did you know that students can take Calvary classes year-round? Because our academic year is structured into eight-week cycles, learning never has to stop – even in summer! The fall semester technically starts in July and concludes when Cycle 3 finishes in December. The spring semester starts with a one-week J-Term and includes Cycles 4-6. We are currently in Cycle 1, and there are several classes meeting during the day and evening hours.
Mr. Williamson is teaching Introduction to Philosophy.
This summer is the first time that Calvary has kept the dorms open in June and July. While the number of students living there is much smaller than during Cycles 2-5, we do have students taking advantage of that opportunity. Of course, many choose to go home for a few months, but they are still able to take summer classes using our blended online model.
Fifty-five students have participated in this week’s J-Term classes. That is the highest J-Term enrollment in many years. While many of the students came back to campus to attend these classes, some viewed the sessions online. J-Term is beneficial for students looking to lighten their course load in the future by taking one class this week before all the others start. The flexibility of online participation is an added bonus! The courses offered this week were Bible Study Methods/Hermeneutics, Counseling Cross-Culturally, American Military History, Music Technology, Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Conflict Resolution.
