Calvary Baptist School is a private school offering a challenging educational program in a nurturing Christian environment for families who desire to see their children mature academically and spiritually. The purpose of CBS is to develop godliness of character and action in the lives of our students. We desire to reinforce the Biblical values taught at church and in the home. Our students are expected to demonstrate self-discipline, high morals, good habits, respect for students and staff, responsibility, and a love of God and country. We seek to help our students meet their potential for Jesus Christ in every area.
The elementary program is designed to help students excel in all subject areas. The Bible is taught, and its principles are the foundation for all other learning. The core elements of the curriculum include mathematics, grammar, spelling, science, history, geography, penmanship, and reading which focuses on mastering phonics.

Each student (4th-12th grade) will be issued a Chromebook for his/her exclusive school use through the school year. We will be able to engage students in retrieving, manipulating, interpreting and applying information and data available through a wide variety of media. As a result, we hope to enhance our learning environments by further enriching critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
A Chromebook is a small, lightweight, personal computer running Chrome OS as its operating system. The devices are designed to be used while connected to the Internet and support applications that reside on the Web, rather than traditional applications that reside on the machine itself.
In order to access Chrome, each student will be given and cbschools.org email address and password. As a protection precaution, students will only be able to send and receive emails from people with the same email extension i.e. other staff and students with the same cbschools.org email addresses.
The cbschools.org email address will also enable students to take full advantage of Google Apps for Education, a select bunch of apps chosen to complement our curriculum. Students can log into Google Chrome from any computer at home to have full access to their work stored in Google Drive.
Chromebook usage and internet safety is very important to us. The following resources may be helpful to parents on this subject.
