About the Provider

Description: Calvary Christian Academy, an entity of Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church, began operations in 1980 as a Nursery through Kindergarten program. In 1991, the church moved to 610 Rhode Island Avenue, NE. Bishop Alfred Owens, Jr. founded the elementary school in 1992, starting with a class of only 10 first grade students.

Previously a teacher in DC Public School System, Bishop Owens became the first grade teacher. Calvary Christian Academy Elementary School was established in 1992 to assist parents in the "whole" spiritual, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of their children. The aim of our teachers is to motivate and compel students to become creative thinkers. We, the faculty and administration, interact with them in such a way that learning becomes fun and activities become an intricate part of their mental, emotional, and physical growth. Our vision is to instill Christian values, social morals, good character, and a comprehensive educational curriculum. Our school has grown tremendously since 1992. The current enrollment is approximately 200 students.
