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.

SCHOLARSHIPS:  

The school provides a list of agencies offering scholarships.  It is the parent's responsibility to make themselves aware of the scholarships available, read the school's notifications and newsletters, know if the scholarship is to be mailed directly to the agency or to our school, know and adhere to the deadline dates for applications, paying any fees required with the application, and photocopying your application for your records, for proof that you completed the forms, and for use if there are any issues.  

If you have questions regarding scholarships, please feel free to contact the school office and they will direct your call to the proper person. 

On-time tuition installments must still be received even if you have applied for a scholarship.  Scholarship amounts vary greatly and we do not know the exact date we will receive them, yet our school still needs to operate until they do come in and tuition payments are needed in a timely manner.  If a scholarship is received and applied to your account, and your personal payments create a credit on your account, you may receive a reimbursement for that credit. 

Most scholarships are applied per month over the entire school year.  This means that you may not discontinue making your monthly installments.  Your monthly installment may be reduced by the amount of the scholarship per month, or you may apply the scholarship at the end of your tuition installments for the school year.  If you withdraw your student from the school during the school year, we will be required to return the amount of the scholarship for the months not attended.

Below are some foundations that are accepting applications

Parent Text Messaging/Remind App- We send text messages for bad weather cancellations and delays, emergency information, general announcements/reminders. Remind is available for all cellular phones, regardless if it is a smart phone or not. The app is free. It is VERY IMPORTANT that every student’s family has this app. Obviously it is used for snow notifications, but should the school experience an emergency or a safety issue, this would be the way we communicate important information to families. 

 

A few things about the Remind app:

1- It is not a two-way text app. The school will not respond to messages received on Remind. 

2- Purpose is simply to get important information directly to you in a fast, convenient way. 

3-The App is free. 

 

Simply click on this link, from your smartphone and follow the prompts. If you do not have a smartphone, contact the office and we will get you set up on your current cell phone.
