This school thrives with energy and spirit. Takes the Christian faith seriously, but stresses the importance of participating in the world and staying exposed. This school truly grows on you.
Rachel from Minneapolis, MN
Calvin is a conservative Christian School with a focus on community building within and outside of the school. The student relaitonships with professors is excellent becuase there are onyl 20 students per class. The campus is beautiful and very safe; there is even a nature preserve on campus for taking long strolls.
