CCA Mission Statement

Calvary Christian Academy (CCA) exists to raise up thinking disciples who seek truth through an ongoing, interactive, relationship with Jesus Christ. CCA seeks to honor God by educating our students in the liberal arts so they might flourish in vocation and represent the transformational power of Christ’s kingdom to community and culture.

CCA Academic Counseling Department Mission & Verse

Partnering with CCA faculty, staff, and parents, the Academic Counselor will promote life time learners in every educational, professional and community awareness pursuit. Through the rigorous academics upheld at CCA, graduating students are able to be equipped in their preparation as they seek and respond to God’s direction for their lives.

"…They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit."
- Jeremiah 17:7-8
