School Notes

  • Jesus Christ is the only solid foundation 
  • First and foremost, we place Jesus Christ at the center of our curriculum. Even in mathematics, children will learn about the amazing God that wrote the code that runs the universe. In science classes, students will be impressed by the astonishing natural processes that could only have been designed by the hand of a mighty Creator.  When students learn about the ebb and flow of history, they will gain a firm understanding of the consequences of rebellion against God, and they will observe God's hands in the wonderful opportunities that have been provided for those nations and peoples that have submitted themselves to God's sovereign authority.  Through the reading of timeless literature, students will have the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of fictional characters and rejoice in their victories.
  • Children are  all fearfully and wonderfully made  
  • We place the value of the individual child above any curriculum, lesson plan, or test.  While we believe it is important for children to master academic material, we understand that each child has been created by God as a unique individual, imbued with certain gifts.  Some children may require more time or a different presentation of a lesson in order to fully comprehend it.  We will help children harness their strengths in order to overcome their weaknesses, even if it means going off script and using material outside of a proscribed curriculum.
  • Children learn on their own schedules
  • We give students the time they need to develop before being pushed onto the next level.  Prior to the introduction of graded classrooms, students were advanced to the next level based upon readiness, not upon chronological age.  A student who required little assistance could move more quickly through the program, while students who required more help would not be rushed to complete work before they were ready. Our multi-age classrooms allow students to move at their own pace without feeling shamed for falling behind peers or feeling bored and unmotivated because the work is too easy. 
  • We do not teach to a test
  • We only use tests as assessment tools. In order to determine which children have mastered the material that has been taught and which children need additional help, tests may be used by classroom teachers.  But tests are only the beginning point.  True mastery of a subject can only be achieved when students are able to apply what they ve learned in order to solve real world problems.  Some kids are great at memorizing facts and then spitting them back out on a test, but facts alone do not an education make.  On the other hand, asking a child to solve problems without having first learned crucial knowledge is useless.  This type of knowledge-less application is what makes up the majority of Common Core's problem solving tasks.  There is an age at which most children are developmentally ready to move from mere information gathering to true application, and this process cannot be rushed, nor should the information gathering stage be skipped in favor of a poorly conceived idea that critical thinking skills can be developed before a child has anything of significance to think about.  
  • A true liberal arts education
  • We recognize that there is a difference between training and educating students. We are teaching human beings, created in the image of God, not training workers, created in the image of the state and the international corporations. Educated human beings can learn the tasks necessary to perform any job, but trained workers can only perform those limited tasks that they were trained to do.  That's why all children, regardless of their ultimate career choice, must receive a foundation in the liberal arts.  The true purpose of a liberal arts education is to prepare a person to participate in a free society.  In the past, this type of education was reserved for the children of the elite or the would-be rulers of a nation, but because every American is ultimately responsible for governing , through participation in elections and other civic responsibilities, every American must have the ability to make informed decisions.  A liberal arts education, coupled with a knowledge of scriptures and a Biblical worldview, provide Christian children with the best possible foundation upon which to build any future career and to lead the life that God has called them to lead. This does not mean that students will not have the opportunity to step outside the halls of academia and learn about different trades in vocational classes, only that career education will not supplant the essential role of a liberal arts education. 
  • What makes Calvary Christian Academy unique
  • Our kindergarten program emphasizes playful learning and developmentally appropriate educational activities.  There are no tests or homework given to  kindergartners.  Did your child miss the cut-off for public school kindergarten   No problem.  We look at a child's readiness for school,  not his or her birthdate.
  • At Calvary Christian Academy, parents and teachers make decisions about student placement and appropriate curriculum.  There are no bureaucrats in charge of our school or your child's education.
  • Calvary Christian Academy is 100% Common Core free
  • We will never share your child's personal information without your written consent. 
  • Affordable tuition for any family
  • Our mission is to provide a high quality, Christ -centered education at a price your family is able to afford.  That's why we offer income-based tuition.  A family's inability to pay should never be the reason that any child is denied  the benefits of a Christian education.  Contact us today to find  out how we can  help your family.
