Curriculum and Clubs


Mt. Calvary Junior Academy operates using the curriculum guide outlined by the Southern Union Conference and General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, in conjunction with the Education Department of the State of Florida. Our program meets both the Adventist standards, as well as Common Core National Standards.
