Mission & Vision Statement
Our Mission Statement
Calvary Academy is a private Christian school with the mission of challenging its students to know Christ as Lord, teaching them to know and apply biblical truth, and training them to pursue academic excellence in order that they may engage and transform their world for Jesus Christ.
Our Vision Statement
Our vision is that each student demonstrates both biblical knowledge and Christian character, along with educational and social skills which will lead to their success in the larger society and the kingdom of God.
Philosophy of Education
Calvary Academy is committed to the biblical view that all wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:2, Proverbs 2:6). We believe that although man was originally created in the image of God, it was through the sin of one man, Adam, that spiritual and physical death resulted for all mankind. It is only through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ on the cross that man is capable of knowing God and having a right relationship with him (Romans 5:17). Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father (John 14:6).
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, and that it contains wisdom that is current for this generation. There is no divide between the sacred and secular, for God reveals Himself through His written word and Creation (Romans 1:20, 2Timothy 3:16). A Christian worldview seeks to teach all subjects as part of the total truth of God, and the revelation of His nature and character.
We believe that effective education is multi-faceted, training and ministering to a child's spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth in light of Biblical authority. We encourage students to become all that God has created them to be to the glory of God the Father. We affirm the biblical truth that parents have the primary responsibility for teaching God's word to their children.
We believe that we are "co-workers" with parents, who have the Biblical mandate to bring up their children in the "training and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). We also affirm that a family's commitment to a local biblically based church is scriptural (Hebrews 10:25). It is through the partnership of family, church and school that we pray to train a generation that is "thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2Timothy 3:17).
Finally, as a school, we are committed to providing an education that is committed to excellence. It is our desire that as a faculty we provide the role model for our students to do all things as unto Him (Colossians 3:23), and to the glory and honor of Jesus Christ (1Peter 1:7).
