Mary Jane Morgan, Lower School Principal



I was part of a church family since birth. I attended church regularly, including Sunday School and Youth Group, until high school when we moved to Winston Salem. During my sophomore year at Elon College, I began attending Intervarsity events and went on a beach retreat in early October. God chose that weekend to draw my heart to Him. I knew in an instant that I wanted a relationship with Jesus and that I had needed Him for a long time. I was overwhelmed by His undeserving grace and mercy. I met my husband a few months later and we were married shortly after I graduated.

J. Van Wade Upper School Principal Van Wade, Upper School Principal



I grew up in a Christian home in Charlotte. During my fourth grade year, we began attending a church/school where I heard the gospel and saw it lived out in the life of my teachers. It was there, in the fifth grade, through the influence of my teacher, and the Holy Spirit’s conviction, that I prayed for the forgiveness of my sin and asked Jesus Christ to lead my life.

Becky Wood, Admissions Director/ Mom of a Senior/ Mom of 2 International Students



Three years ago our family decided to become a host family for international Chinese students coming to live and study in America. My husband and I have talked about hosting a student from another country over the years, so our hearts were open to the idea when New Oasis International Education started a partnership with Calvary Day School. We were one of three families to commit to hosting a Chinese student that first year and we’re so glad we did. Torres Zhang joined our family two years ago and Daniel Lyu joined us last year. This is our third year as host parents and we plan to continue our journey with Torres and Daniel until they graduate from Calvary in 2019.

Scott Tolentino, Upper School Science Teacher



Calvary Day School has been an integral part of my family over the past 15+ years. Having three children at CDS and being an upper school science teacher, it is safe to say that I have invested in the school. But more importantly, the school has invested in me and my family. As a staff member, I know that the teachers and administration have a desire to invest in each life we are blessed to have come through our school. We pray for our students and want to see them succeed. We find what it takes to reach them and that is how we interact with them. As a parent, there have been many occasions that teachers have spent time outside of normal school hours to invest in my child’s development and partner with my wife and I to help them grow into the well-rounded young people that they are now. Another aspect of Calvary that had been a blessing is the “family” atmosphere between the administration, staff, and families of Calvary Day School and Calvary Church. Family is important to me and I feel as if we are a part of a family here at Calvary.

Catherine Stancil, Latin Teacher



I entered Calvary as a first grader. When I came, second grade was the oldest class. Each year as the class ahead of me advanced, a grade was added until they reached sixth grade. I graduated from sixth grade (the highest grade offered) with Phyllis Mills as my teacher. That was Mrs. Mills’ first year at Calvary. I never fully appreciated what those six years at Calvary had done for me until I became a parent. I realized then that Calvary had taught me to view the world like God does. I will never forget my favorite teacher, Mrs. Penny Alexander, carving a pumpkin and telling us only God had seen the inside of that pumpkin before us.
