Our excellent academic curriculum also emphasizes natural science with hands-on experiences, computer technology, social studies, art, music, and physical education for all ages. The instructional program, reinforces and teaches correct oral and written communication, study skills, appropriate decision-making. Our students tested above the national norms in their grade level on the Stanford Achievement test. The curriculum is designed to provide students the means to become successful in their spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. Instruction is given with attnention to the learning styles and unique needs of each student using a sequential approach to skill development and a team approach to instruction. Our faculty of teachers, as well as the student, continue their education in an effort to bring quality education to their students.
The mission of CCCS is to magnify Jesus Christ by offering students in the surrounding communities an academically sound Christian education.
Our purpose at Calvary Chapel Christian School is to assist parents in their God-given responsibility to "bring their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord." Ephesians 6:4 We believe that every child is a gift from God; each with their own interests and needs. We believe that every child develops on his/her own level of growth. Therefore, we as partakers in this process need to develop a trusting and loving relationship with each child. We believe that we are instructed by God to teach the goodness and mercy of God’s unending love. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3: 12-14 The teaching of scripture is our foundation, and the Word of God provides the basis for all that we do. Students will be taught to be an example of the believer in word, deed, love, spirit, faith, and purity. Our prayer is that our students, staff, and parents will give themselves wholly to reading, exhortation, and doctrine.
