Diversity and Marriage Statement: Calvary Chapel Christian School believes that an individual's first responsibility is to the God of the Bible and that a person's whole life should reflect His framework in a context of peace and selfless love. CCCS's standard for diversity is found in the Bible. Individual differences in lifestyle that deny, ignore or reject biblical standards represent diversity in rebellion to God's standards and are unacceptable for the families of CCCS. CCCS holds to the King James Version of the Bible and asserts that marriage is the union between one man and one woman, and that from the beginning of creation God made humans in two distinct sexes, male and female.

Statement of Non-discrimination: It is the commitment of CCCS to provide Christian education by and for God's elect, holy and beloved according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth that is after godliness, and in that context for the purpose does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex and ethnic background. This policy is exercised during student admission, hiring of faculty and staff and all school-administered programs.
