Calvary Christian School is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Old Bridge.
The ministry of CCS is committed to helping parents to disciple their children in the ways of the Lord.
We believe that every student is created "in the image of God" and that when a child receives Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, they become a part of the family of God and need "the pure milk of the Word" in order to mature spiritually.
Our desire is to help them to develop and grow in the purposes and plans that God has for their lives.
Therefore, a central focus of the school is to prayerfully seek the leading of God regarding the school's mission and government.
We believe in the education of the whole student we seek to minister to them spiritually, academically, and socially in much the same way that Jesus did when He lived among the people of His day.
In each classroom, the teacher, under the leading and empowering of the Holy Spirit, is called to model the life of Christ before the students as they create a stimulating learning environment.
All subject material will be integrated with Scriptural principles in order to cultivate a biblical worldview.
Our desire is for students to have a love for learning that will help them to reach their God-given potential.
Our goal is to come alongside like-minded Christian families who desire their children's education to reflect the Christian values that we are committed to instilling through a biblically centered learning environment.
