Hello from Calvary Day School!
Thank you for visiting us online. I hope the information shared on these pages will spark your curiosity about what makes our school special and distinguishes us from other schools in Winston-Salem and the surrounding Triad area.
Calvary Day School has been serving students and families since 1971 and we are thankful to be able to offer a comprehensive educational program with a Kingdom focus. Kingdom Education is the lifelong, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a student to Christ, building the student up in Christ and equipping the student to serve Christ.
The CDS administration, faculty and staff strive to accomplish this daily through academics that stimulate critical thinking from a Biblical worldview, fine arts and athletics that cultivate unique gifts and talents and enrich the student experience, and school community that brings balance to all aspects of life and learning.
We would count it a privilege to have you visit us on campus very soon!
Head of School
Calvary Day School partners with parents to equip students to think, learn, and live from a Biblical worldview by integrating God’s Word into every aspect of life so they can impact the world for Christ.
Calvary Day School is committed to lead students to a deep and personal knowledge of Christ and His Word, instruct students in order to achieve the highest levels of scholarship, and encourage students to accomplish God’s eternal purposes.
- Calvary Day School states as its Statement of Faith that it adheres to the doctrinal position of Calvary Baptist Church of Winston-Salem, Inc., as outlined in the Baptist Faith and Message (2000). This document may be viewed HERE.
- Calvary Day School affirms the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) Statement of Faith as a member school of ACSI.
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
- We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
- We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4: 15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
- We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16–19, 5:24; Romans 3:23, 5:8–9; Ephesians 2:8–10; Titus 3:5).
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13–14; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19–20; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
- We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2:18–25). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2–5; Hebrews 13:4). We believe that God’s command is that there be no sexual intimacy outside of or apart from marriage between a man and a woman.
- We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26–27).
