Calvary Christian Academy was founded in September of 1995 as an educational ministry of Calvary Chapel Philadelphia. The primary goal was to work with Christian families to educate and disciple Godly young men and woman. The school initially began as a PK through 8th grade school and soon after added 9th through 12th grades in 1997. In 1998, CCA graduated its first class and since that time has seen students enroll in over 100 different colleges and universities including; University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania State University, Calvary Chapel Bible College, Liberty University, West Point Military Academy, Johns Hopkins University, Cedarville University, Temple University, University of Pittsburgh, and Grove City College. CCA received full accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools in 2012. Our academic programs are designed to meet the learning needs of the honors student, college prep student and the student working at a more basic level. Special education services are provided in accordance to our special education program and handbook. School electives and after school programs provide opportunities for CCA’s students to hone the gifts the Lord has given them in areas of the fine arts, athletics, computer science, and the culinary arts. In 2015, Calvary Christian Academy celebrates 20 years of serving Christ’s kids.
All of the teachers are here because they love the Lord and feel the Lord has called them to partner with you, the parents, to “train up the children in the way they should go.” The school runs with the emphasis on positive reinforcement. Students have the opportunity to earn “Caught Being Good” slips and are rewarded for these slips.
At CCA, we are constantly evaluating and adding to our program to give the students the most well-rounded education we can provide. Our primary goal is to teach them the love of the Lord, but just as important, is that the academic standard is one that will allow the students to become whatever God intends for them. They must have the building blocks necessary to develop good academic learning habits.
We pray that the Lord will guide you in your search for the best school to fit your child’s needs. Monthly tours are conducted of the building and there is a question and answer period during this time. If you would be interested in attending a tour, contact the elementary school at 215-969-1579.
Thank you and God Bless,
It is the desire of both the faculty and administration to disciple young men and women who are seeking to enhance their relationship with the Lord. These opportunities are provided to our students in an academic setting, through our athletic program and in various forms of ministry. Our faculty is comprised of loving, caring and well-educated individuals that serve our student body on a daily basis. We are blessed to have the pastoral staff of Calvary Chapel teach our Jr/Sr High Bible classes. CCA is also equipped with a qualified guidance department to counsel your child and assist in college acceptance.
As you peruse our website it is my prayer that the Lord would assist you in your decision to find the right educational facility for your child.
Please feel free to contact the school with any questions or sign up for a tour of CCA.
