Academics

Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established. By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. — Proverbs 24:3-4

The academic pillar of Calvary Christian Academy is built upon the cornerstone of a biblical perspective from which students learn to view the world and their role in it. We strive for excellence spiritually, academically, and socially, shaping our students to be world changers. We accomplish this with our educational professionals called by God to CCA. Our teachers receive ongoing professional development in Biblical integration as well as leading practices, allowing them to teach all subjects through a biblical lens and worldview. We set high academic standards rooted in the word of God and use a variety of resources, featuring leading technology, together with carefully selected curriculum, and research-based instructional practices, to deepen students intellectual skills.

Philosophy of Education

Calvary Christian Academy is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale,  adhering to the church’s mission, vision and values by  mirroring it within an educational context. As such, CCA exists to MAKE DISCIPLES of Jesus Christ in a biblical school environment that prepares students to glorify God Spiritually, Academically and Socially.  We also share CCFTL’s  Statement of Faith and doctrinal principles, which reflect a covenant school emphasis (Deuteronomy 6), that is in partnership with parents in the education of their child (Proverbs 22:6).

CCA is designed to be a distinctively Christian school system and desires to "seek first His kingdom and righteousness" (Matthew 6:33), in all aspects of its mission, including but not limited to decisions on philosophy, standards, curriculum, and finances, as well as unforeseen future educational trends.  

The school considers Jesus Christ to be preeminent in all we do (Colossians 1:18) and prayerfully desires to pursue world-class education in His name!

CCA Academic Standards

CCA has developed its own set of academic standards that meet or exceed state, national, and common core standards.  We ensure that our students are taught the concepts that will prepare them for high school, high stakes testing and college.  We teach from a biblical worldview that prepares students to make disciples and to defend their faith.  CCA utilized the following standards in the development of the CCA Academic Standards:

-       LCA standards (developed by Liberty University professors in conjunction with their K-12 school educators)
-       Florida Department of Education standards
-       International Society for Technology in Education standards
-       American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages standards
-       Curriculum Planning and Learning Management System standards
-       Department of Defense standards

We trust this comprehensive approach rooted in a biblical worldview will empower our students so that they can leave CCA as world-changers.
