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.
As we try to bridge the gap for some students, we also understand other students need additional opportunities to be encouraged and stimulated to use their God-given gifts. In addition to our growing STEM program, which is open for all students, we are also able to offer once a week enrichment sessions for teacher-recommended students who are successfully achieving in their classroom and are available to meet during the enrichment periods.
The branches of our support services are stretching. Some services have been offered at CBS for over 20 years. We are thankful for those who had a vision and the dedication to reach out to students and families who often had nowhere to turn for a Christ-centered education. Some of our services are fairly young and growing stronger. As we try to meet the needs of a diverse student population, we see our branches stretching further; that is our future. We cannot be everything to everyone, but we will strive to be the best we can be to help parents train their children for Christ, to help students walk in confidence, and to bring glory to God.
