BUF-Calvary College’s History

God gave the vision for establishing a college to the people of Calvary Church in 2022. Calvary Church started a high school in 2000 and watched it grow to an enrollment of nearly 800 students.

Helping our graduates find the perfect fit for college has grown ever more challenging, thus the dream of beginning a college. Calvary has partnered with the Baptist University of Florida to launch BUF-Calvary College in fall 2024.

BUF-Calvary College is prepared for a pioneer class of 150 students seeking a local, affordable, Christ-centered experience.
