As parents, you want God’s best for your children. That is also our desire at Calvary Christian Academy. Solidly grounded in God’s Word, CCA provides a Christ-centered environment for academic excellence where children can flourish and grow into the individuals God intends them to be. Coming alongside the Christian family, CCA provides an atmosphere where students are challenged to further refine their pursuit of godly character within their families, churches, schools, and communities. This godly character is the foundation our students build upon as they advance in the call God places on their lives.
We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ through a biblical school environment that prepares students to glorify God spiritually, academically, and socially.
We commit to co-labor with our parents and students in living under the authority and by the will of God. In all our dealings, we pursue the Holy Spirit through His Word. This forms the foundation and determines the direction of CCA. As parents and teachers, we commit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in our lives and to raising our kids to know Him. This commitment is evident by our love and sacrifice.
In accordance with the Philosophy of Education of CCA, it is expected that a parent/legal guardian ofevery CCA student:
1) is “born again.” (John 3:1–8; Titus 3:4–7)
2) instructs the children in the Christian faith at home. (Deuteronomy 6:6–7)
3) accompanies his or her children faithfully to church. (Hebrews 10:25)
4) is willing to co-labor with the school in the education and discipleship of their children. (Amos3:3)
Spiritual Standard of Admission
CCA is called to serve those parents who take to heart the command of the Lord in Deuteronomy 6:6–7 above. We seek to come alongside families who have a deep commitment to Jesus Christ and a devotion to His ways. Therefore, for consideration for admission to CCA, at least one parent in the family must have received Jesus Christ and be devoted to following Him.

Students achieving below the academic standards of admissions may be enrolled at the discretion of the Academy Administration.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and ethnic origin in our educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
