The History of Calvary Christian Academy
Calvary Christian Academy is a private, non-profit Christian School founded in 1967 as a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church. The curriculum provides a traditional Christian education founded on the principles of the Scripture. These principles are inculcated in each subject throughout every class and by all instructors. The school implements the teachings of the family and the local church, helping to rear children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Our mission is to develop God-honoring students that exhibit continuous spiritual growth, that become personally and socially responsible adults, and that pursue excellence in their lives for the glory of God.
The philosophy of education at Calvary Christian Academy and Preschool is taken from the Word of God. We believe that the Bible sets forth a very definite philosophy of education, and we attempt to follow this philosophy as set forth in the following verses:
- The Command for Christian Education: Deuteronomy 6:4-7a - "Hear O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shalt be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children."
- The Vision for Christian Education: Proverbs 22:6 - "Train up a child in the way he should go: And when he is old, he will not depart from it."
- The Method for Christian Education: I Corinthians 14:40 - "Let all things be done decently and in order."
We attempt to lead our students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to teach them the fear of the Lord as "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge." The aim we have for our students is that they might "love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might." We accomplish this by integrating and diligently teaching the precepts of the word of God throughout the curriculum.
