Calvary Christian Academy


Academics

Elementary

K5 – 2nd

A solid spiritual and academic foundation is important for a student’s success. At CCA we provide this foundation by starting each day with a Bible lesson, teaching reading with a strong phonetic approach, Mathematics, Phonics, Science, History, and Writing. We also provide instruction in Physical Education, Art, Music, Computer, and how to use the Library. Bible instruction and Christian values are incorporated into our daily teaching, along with enough fun to make learning enjoyable and to increase social skills. Students also attend Chapel one day a week. Several after school, extra curricular activities are offered such as; soccer, basketball, and pep squad.


3rd – 6th

Continuing to build on the strong foundation that was laid in K5 through 2nd grades, 3rd-6th grade teaches Bible, Mathematics, Reading, Language, History, Science, Health, Spelling, and Writing. In addition to these core subjects, Music, Computer, Physical Education, Art, and library skills are taught. Bible instruction and Christian values are taught within each subject and the students get to hear dynamic preaching at each of our weekly chapel services. Several after school, extra curricular activities are offered such as; soccer, basketball, and cheerleading.
