STUDENT LIFE AT CALVARY LUTHERAN
Student life at Calvary has been a huge impact on not only my life, but in several others lives. The culture of Calvary is unlike any school I have ever encountered. We not only have friends and mentors, but we have also built a family. As a family we have had opportunities like the Thanksgiving meal we have every year to sit down together as a unified group and be thankful for each individual associated with our school. We have opportunities like Chapel each week to come together in worship and grow in our faith, a place where we can leave our doubts and worries and gain strength to keep moving forward. We have opportunities like sports teams or clubs where we learn the importance of service in our community and for our Lord, and we get to work as a team to accomplish those goals. These are just a few examples of the countless amount of opportunities we have had times of family, faith, and fellowship.
While we have had all of these wonderful memories that doesn’t mean that our school has never had hard times or faced challenges. Just like every family, our family does make mistakes. We get tired of each other, we say things we don’t mean, we lack a good attitude at times, but the thing that I think makes us different is how we all come together no matter what, to work through those challenges. We give all of our struggles to God and focus on the love that He gives us and we try our best to spread that love to others. We do this by holding each other accountable, respecting each other, growing with each other, worshiping with each other, loving each other, and serving with each other.
While our clubs, sports, and activities are all apart of our student life, the foundation of each of these things come from our focus on God and our strong Calvary family.

THE CALVARY EXPERIENCE
At Calvary Lutheran High School, activities are an integral part of student life because they allow students to build their leadership skills, extend their learning beyond the classroom, and develop their God-given talents and abilities to reach their full potential. CLHS offers a wide variety of clubs to enable students to pursue their interests, be of service to others, and have fun with friends. At the beginning of each school year, a Club Fair is held to give students the opportunity to learn more about each club and consider which clubs to join. At any time during the year, students may contact a club’s advisor to inquire about club activities. Membership in school-sponsored clubs is recorded on the student’s permanent record and may be a positive factor in future evaluations of the student’s academic program.
Students at Calvary Lutheran High School attend Chapel once a week. Pastors from Association churches, faculty, and even some Calvary Lutheran High School students help lead the Chapel services. We have a student band that leads us in worship a few times a year as well. The Chapel service helps students take a break from the school day and spend time with God and worship among a community of believers.
