Our objective is to provide students with a solid, Christian education that upholds the highest of academic standards. 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 opportunities offered throughout the year.
Calvary is a K-12 school with more than 300 students currently enrolled. Our commitment to academic excellence throughout grades K-12 is evidenced by our 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 high school students have consistently scored above the national average on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
CCS begins with K3 and K4 students learning the truths of God’s Word as well as their letters, numbers, and shapes through song and play. The children have fun while learning to be kind, follow directions, be a helper, and more all in a safe and loving atmosphere. Our K3 and K4 programs meet Monday through Friday from 8:10-11:45 a.m. Students may choose to stay a full day which includes lunch, recess, and nap time.
Kindergarten provides a wonderful foundation of learning for our 5-year-old students. The children are excited to learn and progress quickly. We use the BJUPress curriculum, which emphasizes phonics, word families, and service words and leads the students to have great success in reading. The curriculum lays the foundation for critical-thinking skills and teaches for understanding of the subjects. Kindergarten is a full day of school, 8:10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Our kindergarten and elementary students represent approximately two-thirds of the total student body. For these students, we teach from the BJU Press® and the A Beka® curriculum, which place a strong emphasis on phonics, reading comprehension, and mathematics. Students also have the opportunity to participate in regular music, Spanish, choir, library, and physical education classes as a part of their weekly curriculum.
Calvary’s high school students represent approximately one-third of total student enrollment. Our program includes a strong, college preparatory curriculum, with additional coursework available in music, speech, computer skills, and other disciplines. Physical education is a part of the daily curriculum in grades 7-9, and athletic participation is encouraged at all grade levels. Students also have the opportunity to develop leadership skills through involvement in student government, leadership conferences, and other activities.
