About CCS

Calvary Christian School is a Pre K-12 school that has provided a Christian education for students in the Grand Strand area since 1974.  Our founding purpose, to help parents “train a child in the way he should go,” continues to be our guiding principle today.  With the Bible as our foundation, and with Christ as our focus, we seek to provide a spiritual and educational environment that allows students to study all subjects in the light of God’s Word, so “That in all things He might have the preeminence” (Colossians 1:18).

More than 200 students are proud to call Calvary their “home away from home!”  These outstanding benefits are the reason:

Because we are foremost a Christian school, we teach the fundamental Biblical principles to which we are committed.  We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that Jesus Christ is both God and man, and that He was crucified, buried, and resurrected from the dead for our salvation.  We believe and teach the Bible with a literal interpretation!  Since the Bible serves as the foundation for study in all grades, students attend daily Bible classes and weekly Chapel services with a special, spiritual emphasis each semester.

Located on Highway 544 in the Socastee community, our 12-acre campus houses an auditorium, administrative offices, classrooms, an activity center and cafeteria, a 12,000 square foot gymnasium, a soccer field, baseball and softball diamonds, a piano studio, and a computer lab.  And, most importantly, you will find teachers that love God and love His children!

At CCS, we stand committed to excellence in every arena!  We not only offer a solid, Christian education that upholds the highest of academic standards, but we also have strong, well-established fine arts and athletic programs.

CCS is a member of the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools (SCACS) and the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS).

Calvary’s commitment to academic excellence throughout grades K-12 is evidenced by its strong test results.  In nationally standardized testing (Stanford Achievement), students in every grade perform well above their grade level — and well above the state and national averages!  Additionally, our students have consistently scored above the state and national averages on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).

Over the past six years, an amazing 90% of CCS graduates have chosen to continue their education at colleges and universities throughout South Carolina and across the nation!  Calvary alumni can be found at many fine schools such as The Citadel, Bob Jones University, USC, Charleston Southern, Clemson, The Johns Hopkins University, Pensacola Christian College, the United States Naval Academy, and many others!

It is our desire to provide a solid, Christian education at an affordable cost.

Calvary Christian School is one of the finest and most well-established schools in the community.  We welcome your call or visit and would be pleased to provide you with more information!
