About Calvary Christian Academy

Calvary Christian Academy encourages and provides academic and social opportunities outside of the classroom as well. Students are able to participate in community outreaches and mission trips, provide community service, and travel to conferences and competitions. Social activities encompass many areas including special events, concerts, class trips, after-school functions, and more. We also have three on-site dining options that promote fellowship for families and students alike. We encourage parents to get their day going after student drop-off by grabbing a cup of coffee and attending an on-site, morning Bible study or volunteering in their child's classroom. The Bible instructs us to impress God's commandments upon our children "when you sit at home, when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Calvary Christian Academy seeks to provide the appropriate school environment and support to assist you in your responsibility as a Christian parent to raise up the next generation. At CCA, we consider it a tremendous honor to serve the Lord by co-laboring with families to equip students to walk in the good works God has prepared in advance for them to do.
