Whittier Christian Schools was established in 1947 as a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church of Whittier, California.
Whittier Christian Schools is dedicated to excellence in Christian education developing disciplined, motivated students who are academically strong and have a personal faith in Christ and are equipped to affect the world for Him.
Our purpose is to partner with families to educate students academically, socially, and spiritually in a Christ-centered atmosphere.
"And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Our goals are to focus on our constituency's desire for spiritual growth, academic development, security, and expansion.
We strive for continued improvement and quality of curriculum and programs so that students are strong, equipped for further education, based on a Biblical foundation in a Christ-centered atmosphere.
