 School Calendar     
Calvary Christian School- 
A Serious "Back-to-Basics" Education

                     Abeka- Scope and Sequence

We are very pleased to use ABEKA as the backbone to our curriculum. We use additional textbooks from Association of Christian Schools International and Bob Jones Press to extend and enrich in certain areas within the curriculum. Of course, our teaching faculty with an average of twenty years of teaching experience per teacher, always bring something special to the students that no curriculum can duplicate. We thought that families would like to see what we do and how we do it!

Call the school office with questions.
Registration for 2017-18 at CCS!


K4 1
Each year, it is a privilege to partner with parents who desire a Christ- centered education for their children. The school is completing the               registration process of our current students, and we are now interviewing new students.
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 as a ministry. We also want to listen to what you need for your children. This type of personal care is one of the things which makes our school special.
The Application Process:
1- Review the student handbook and website to become acquainted with the school.
2- Call for a personal interview. We request that both parents attend the meeting.  Parents should bring the most recent progress report which will allow the administration to see if additional educational evaluation is needed.
3- Parents will have ten days from the date of the interview to make application along with the payment of the Registration and Book Fee. The school will act upon that application within ten days. In the event the school is unable to accept a student, fees paid will be refunded.

CCS Supports "Appalachian Christmas"


Calvary Christian School is excited to send some of our students and faculty to Appalachia each Christmas and Easter to help meet the physical needs of the poorest county in the United States while sharing the hope that comes with Christian faith.


This year, the team will be leaving on November 30 and will return on December 3. Three of our own will be a part of a eighteen member team that will work with Freeda Harris Baptist Center in outreach. The team will also take a 26' truck filled with pallets of clothes, toys and baby supplies. Last Christmas, the center helped 1500 people celebrate Christmas. The collection is mainly for babies and children.


The team will be collecting these items during the month of November with the last day of collection being November 28. Please support consider supporting this effort and bring new toys, clothes and baby supplies to the school office. A report with pictures will follow when the team returns. The team always request your prayer support for this outreach!




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!
