We love Calvary Chapel Academy and the fact that the Biblical values and principles we teach our daughter at home are being reinforced at school and vice versa. We absolutely love her teacher, and all the staff we come in contact with at this school. The parent/teacher communication has been excellent and I love the fact that I can message her teacher or aftercare director at any time with questions and concerns. I look forward to having more opportunities for our daughter as she advances at CCA.

My granddaughter went here for VPK and LOVED it. We did too. She wanted to go to school on the weekends. :) Dedicated teachers and great results in academics!

My kids have been at this school for six years. I feel incredibly blessed to have them in a loving, Christian environment such as CCA. The teachers are very kind, and compassionate about what they do. The security is amazing, and there has never been one time I have worried about how their day would go after dropping them off in the morning. The fact that they wear uniforms is definite plus, and they are learning about the Lord in every subject.
