Calvary Christian School Community Celebrate Together!
The last day of school before Christmas break, the Calvary Christian School community gathered to celebrate the birth of Christ together. The six weeks of work that the students had put into the program resulted in a beautiful presentation that shared the love of God for His people through the birth, life, and redemptive work at Calvary. It was perfect way to end school before the students and faculty left for break.
Many thanks go out to every student and faculty member who helped prepare the presentation or had a role in the program. This includes every student who learned their musical parts, all students who memorized their lines which were sometimes pages in length. A special thanks goes out to Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Wallace for writing, organizing, and directing the program.
Finally, we must thank the star of the show - Jesus - for showing up many years ago, living a life that we could not live, to die a death for the price that we could not pay, to redeem His children from a life of sin and death to a life of joy and eternity!
Second Quarter Report Cards
Second Quarter Report Cards will be sent home for all students at Calvary Christian School on Friday, January 16. Please review the report, sign it, and return it within two days of it coming home.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the report card. Parents, teachers, and administration working together in a team effort is the best way to accomplish what is needed for the students.
Registration for 2015-2016 School Year
It is a real privilege each year to partner with parents who desire Christian education for their children. At this time each year, the process of allowing God to recreate the school begins, and we watch with amazement as families relocate and new families are added to our community.
This time of year is also a walk in faith, because, technically, the school has no students and faculty as of the last day of the current school year. Yet, the Lord moves and encourages students, parents, and faculty to hear the call that will draw a piece of the next generation closer to Him.
From January 15-February 27, Calvary Christian School will register the student body for next school year (called protected registration). This is important because the administration will then provide our faculty with their covenants for next school year. This is impacted by the degree of registration which occurs during the protected registration.
Please be watching for our new, short-form registration package to come home for each family. Once received, the form will be complete, and all that will be needed is a parental signature and a check for the registration and book fee. All rates will remain the same for families that register during the protected registration period.
Your help in making this a timely process will be deeply appreciated. In order to make the school the best possible experience for our students, it is our desire to have 100% understanding of the intent of every family at CCS!
Please call the school administrator if you have any questions about the process or the information in the package once it is received.
M L King, Jr. Day
There will be no school on Monday, January 19, in honor of Martin L King, Jr. Day. There will be no classes, AM/PM Care or after-school activities.
2015 Summer Day Camp- Sooner than you think!
Please be watching for a survey related to Calvary Christian School once again sponsoring a summer day camp program for our students. Your input is needed in accessing the need of the families at the school for this program.
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 are 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.
2014-2015 Student Registration- to New Families- Not to late!
School changes due to relocation and other considerations are sometimes needed mid-school year. We understand the special care such transfers require. If you are considering making a mid-year change or if your family's situation now requires the programs offered by Calvary Christian School, we look forward to meeting with you regarding our Pre-K through high school programs.
If your family is seeking an outstanding Christian education for your child, please contact the school office at 703-221-2016 or 703-441-6868 to get information regarding next school year and set up an appointment with the school's administrator.
We look forward to seeing if our school is what you are looking for as we partner together in teaching your child in academic areas and growing them spiritually.
Now is the time to reserve your child's seat!

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
