International Admissions

The vision of Calvary Day School is to be a lighthouse of Kingdom education worldwide. The International Student Program was started in the fall of 2014 with two students and has grown to twenty-five students from five different countries. CDS offers a balanced education where we have strong college-preparatory academics in conjunction with excellence in fine arts and athletics. It has been exciting to see our international students branch out into student life and participate in many of these CDS activities.
