Learning Resources Program
Welcome to Calvary Learning Resources ~ sometimes referred to as the CLR! We are an enrichment area of Calvary Day School and delight in joining the school in the phenomenal efforts of helping students think, learn, and live for Jesus Christ.
Believing every student is “fearfully and wonderfully made,”, it is our pleasure and joy to come alongside students who may need to use the extra academic assistance that we offer within our resource area. The CLR offers Orton-Gillingham language therapy, testing accommodations, and subject tutoring. Our staff is committed to excellence and, with expertise and compassion, strives to meet the needs of each student. In each of these areas, we endeavor to point students toward the understanding that God is faithful to be their help as Psalm 121 reminds us, “…where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
