A Huge "Thank You!"


We want to thank every parent who took time to help sell products for the first fundraiser of the school year. This project generated the largest number of items sold of any fund raiser in the last five years with over $125 student avage. We know that the effort required you to make it a priority in your schedule, so we thank you.

Calvary Christian School- A Place to call home!




K4 1

It is a privilege each year to partner with parents who desire Christ- centered education for their children. At this time each year, the process of allowing God to recreate the school is apparent. Currently enrolled families "re-up" for the next school year, some families are transferred, and new families  come to take their place. It is always a joy to see what God does during this natural time of year.

3/4 2

If you are a new family to the area, unhappy with your current educational choice for your child, please consider making a call to the school for a personal visit. We want to share with you the story of Calvary Christian School and what we are about. We also want to listen to what you need for your children. This type of personal care is one of the things that makes our school special. 


Call the school office at 703-441-6868 to set up a campus visit!


Adverse Weather Policy    
Decisions related to the opening and closing of the school are made by the school administrator about 5:30 AM each morning during times of actual or forcasted adverse weather. Parents should look at the top of the homepage and check their email to find the status of school operations. 

In the event school must be closed early, the same communication methods will be used. Additionally, we will do our best to phone parents regarding the closing. Parents ae encouraged to call the school at 703-441-6868 in the event there is a question regarding an early closing. 
The safety of our school community is always at the heart of the adinistrator's weather call on school operations. Because of the large geographic area in which our school community lives and the various types of topography, parents always have the last word on keeping their children home.  



One of the great blessings of being brothers and sisters in Christ is that we can pray with one another. Call or stop by the office if you would like to pray together! 




 Passage of the Month:
Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.
(Isaiah 40: 28-31)
