Calvary Christian School

  • Calvary Christian School was founded in 1982 as a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church.
  • All faculty members of Calvary are born-again Christians who are dedicated to serving the Lord.
  • Each faculty member has been carefully and prayerfully selected and is spiritually and academically well qualified to teach and serve our students.
  • CCS is owned and operated by Calvary Baptist Church, an independent, fundamental, local Baptist church.
  • The school takes the same fundamental position as the church in its beliefs regarding the Word of God, separation from the standards and morals of the world, etc.
  • All programs are based on the authority of God's Word, emphasize the fundamentals of the Christian faith, utilize a Bible-centered approach, and maintain a faculty of only born-again believers in Jesus Christ.
  • With the Lord's help and leadership we seek to train students in spiritual, mental), physical, and social areas, keeping before them the goals of Christ-likeness, separation from the world, and allegiance to Biblical truth.
  • We stand without apology for the old-time Gospel. Our purpose at CCS is to educate students in truth and righteousness and, in so doing, support their families and Bible-believing churches.
  • Our mission is to produce academically well-prepared students who are spiritually minded and who will influence those around them for the Lord Jesus Christ for a lifetime.
