Providing international students with an exceptional study experience in the United States.
The International Student Program at Calvary Christian Academy provides exceptional academic training for 7th–12th grade students seeking to grow in their Christian faith. With over 30 extracurricular activities, one-on-one discipleship opportunities, and expert faculty, students grow spiritually, academically, and socially. For students who engage at CCA, the opportunities for growth are limitless.
As a young person, being apart from your family and immersed in another culture can be a big change. Through our homestay model, we partner with Christian families to offer more than just room and board, but a place where students can connect and call home. International students traveling without their parents may live with pre-approved families that support the mission of CCA and provide safe, clean, comfortable living quarters. Our strong support system helps international students advance as they acclimate to the study-abroad experience.
Calvary Christian Academy is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale (CCFL), which was founded in 1985. CCFL is home to more than 16,000 people and offers ten regional campuses in South Florida, the Florida Keys, as well as a Web campus that reaches a vast area across the globe.
The Discipleship Department of CCA exists to encourage students in their relationship with Christ and equip them to follow the Lord’s commission in Matthew 28:19 to “go and make disciples of all nations.” Students have opportunities to experience God through age appropriate and biblically based activities such as chapel and local outreach opportunities, as well as small groups, spiritual retreats, and international mission trips.
CCA teaches students how to purposefully present God’s view of the world, its history, language, math and science. Its rich college preparatory curriculum trains the hearts and minds of students to understand and apply the biblical principles to every area of life.
CCA is located on 75 acres of land with more than eight modern facilities, including a state-of-the-art theatre, which seats over 750 people, two gymnasiums, a skating ramp, three-star restaurant, cafeteria and a four-story building with modern classrooms, two media centers, science labs, and nine fully-equipped PC and MAC computer labs, with the latest technology ready to serve students and staff.
