History and Mission
In 1974, under the leadership of Robert S. Weeks and John A. Gregory, Calvary Christian School was founded as a ministry of Calvary Bible Church. Initially only kindergarten through second grade was offered, and later, grades three through twelve were added. Enrollment has steadily increased over the years, resulting in ever-expanding academic, fine arts, and sports programs that provide a well-rounded education.
The goal of Calvary Christian School is to give each student the maximum knowledge of the various subjects and the essentials of culture in the light of God’s Word “That in all things He might have the preeminence” (Col. 1:18). Even though knowledge is factually the same for the believer and unbeliever, no subject can be taught in its truth if the Originator is ignored. Recognizing that spiritual truths are spiritually discerned, only teachers who have personally accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord can possibly teach in a way pleasing to God. Consequently, only a Christian school with born-again teachers can give a child the education God expects in keeping with His instruction in Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our entire school program is designed to help parents fulfill this command of God. Any parent with different educational and spiritual expectations for his child is likely to be dissatisfied with Calvary Christian School.
