Student Council is composed of a select group of students from seventh grade through twelfth grade. These students, nominated by both peers and teachers, serve for one year. The purpose of student council is to build unity among the student body from the preschool through the secondary grades. Some of our projects include adopting an elementary class each month, sponsoring activities to introduce our diverse student body to each other’s cultures, help with cleaning up the lunchroom, as well as being on call as hosts for various school events. Student council members are Christ-like examples of servant leadership and are a vital part of Calvary Baptist School’s mission to inspire students to serve Christ.
The KCEA Honor Society is composed of students who have maintained a 3.25 GPA, are in good disciplinary standing, and have a consistent Christian testimony. The purpose of Honor Society is community outreach. Honor Society students volunteer monthly at Manna on Main, a local organization that provides services to those in need; sponsor diapers and wipes drives for North Care Pregnancy Center; support missionary efforts of our alumni; and represent the school at various community events.
Guidance counseling services are available to all students and parents. Services include SAT/ACT prep classes and advising, college application and entrance assistance, career counseling, college information and visiting opportunities, and help with financial aid. Counseling is also available to students in elementary through high school who need spiritual, academic, or emotional support. Counseling is also available for parents who are in need of guidance in helping their children for decisions post-high school.

Psychological and academic testing services are available to students upon request of teachers and parents through the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU). The MCIU provides evaluation and guidance for students who are not performing well academically because of psychological, emotional or behavioral factors. The MCIU does not diagnose, but, rather, evaluates and provides guidance for possible solutions to challenges.

Student Support Services at Calvary Baptist School provide a unique opportunity to care for and educate students with academic needs of support or enrichment. As God’s Word tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). We all have value and unique ways in which we can impact the world for Christ and bring Him glory.
Our programs exist to serve non-traditional learners who have needs which require additional services through our remedial support programs. Students who would not otherwise flourish in the traditional classroom setting are able to receive services through these programs which meet on a schedule and frequency determined by the program instructors. Personalized attention to a students’ strengths and weaknesses are addressed through a variety of diagnostic tools, teaching methods, and remedial techniques. The goal is to help individuals meet with success and grow as capable students who enjoy learning.
