Where Students Thrive


School History

Calvary Christian Academy (CCA) was founded in 1987 as a ministry of Calvary Chapel San Diego. CCA is a private Christian school located in Chula Vista, California and serves a preschool through 12th grade student population.

Mission Statement

Calvary Christian Academy exists to educate thinking disciples who seek truth through an ongoing, interactive, relationship with Jesus Christ. CCA pursues this by partnering closely with parents in the biblical training of their children. CCA seeks to honor God by providing a solid liberal arts education, taught from a biblical worldview, enabling each student to flourish in vocation while representing the transformational power of Jesus Christ in the world.

Statement of Faith

We believe:

  1. In one God, the creator and sustainer of the universe, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  2. In the divine inspiration, infallibility and final authority of the Bible as the Word of God.
  3. In the uniqueness of man, by virtue of his special creation in God's image, and his responsibility to understand and master the world to the glory of God.
  4. In the unique Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate, virgin-born Son of God.
  5. In the representative and substitutionary death of our Lord Jesus Christ as the necessary atonement for our sins.
  6. In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord and that blessed hope, His personal return.
  7. In the power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration and His continuing work in the heart of the believer.
  8. In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
  9. In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  10. That God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female in conformity to their biological sex, and that these two distinct complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Genesis 1:26-27).
  11. That God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union.
  12. In the sanctity of human life and that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Psalm 139).

Educational Philosophy

Calvary Christian Academy exists to help prepare children to be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. CCA will honor God by instilling a desire for and love of Christ in each student so he/she will want to exemplify Him in all areas of life.

Servant leadership is exemplified by the staff and practiced by the students at CCA. Staff members serve the student body as stewards of Christ in many areas such as coaching sports, academic tutoring, and student counsel. CCA students are given the opportunity to serve each other, the staff, and the community at large. As part of servant leadership and academic excellence, CCA students are encouraged to become fluent Spanish speakers and are offered Spanish instruction Pre-K through 12th grade.

Calvary Christian Academy believes the Bible clearly teaches that parents are primarily responsible for their child’s upbringing, discipline, and restoration. It is our desire to be a support, not the primary solution in a child’s upbringing (Proverbs 22:6, 13:24, 23:13-14, 19:18). CCA has set Biblically-based expectations as a firm foundation to be backed by consistent encouragement and consequences in the spirit of Proverbs 22:6, 23:13-14, 19:20 and Hebrews 12:1-13. 

Calvary Christian Academy serves the community in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by providing loving Christian care and high quality Christian education for children of parents that desire a Christ-centered education. In turn, as a school, we serve others through various outreaches locally and abroad.

Calvary Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
