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.
Our vision is to become a dynamic Christ-centered, college preparatory educational institution whose graduates are spiritually mature, intellectually sound, emotionally balanced, and influential in the world, all for the glory of God.
Christian education is based on and unified in the biblical view of God, man, and the universe. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 states, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” This constitutes a Biblical Worldview, the foundation of the acquisition of knowledge and truth.
Purpose of Christian Education
The purpose for education is to make God the focal point of one’s life. "Jesus said... Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind" (Matthew 22:37). God must be recognized, honored, and served in every field in which the human intellect operates. This cannot be accomplished in a setting that regards God as irrelevant. We must recognize the God of the Bible as the first premise of education. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7).
Goal of Christian Education
The development of Christian character is paramount to successful Christian education. This starts with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only through the miracle of salvation and the process of sanctification by the power of the Holy Spirit can we see true character develop (Ephesians 1:18-20). External change comes only through internal spiritual growth (1 Samuel 16:7).
Method of Christian Education
The course of study (or curriculum) pursued by a student has a philosophical basis. Any curriculum must seek to discover truth (John 14:6). Therefore, only academically sound, logically structured, and appropriately challenging Biblically based curriculum will be employed to accomplish this purpose (Isaiah 28:10). Structure and discipline are necessary to train students in self-control and self- government (1 Corinthians 14:40). Teaching is a relationship based in Christian love and mutual respect (1 Timothy 1:5). All current strategies and methodologies will be qualified through a Biblical filter with attention to God’s unique design of each student (Proverbs 22:6).
