Core Values

 

Core values are the school's guiding principles that direct the school in fulfilling its mission. Core values define a school's culture. Listed below are Calvary Christian High School’s core values—beliefs which are reflected in our actions because they are deeply embedded in our identity as a school.

1.  Partnering with Parents

It is fundamental to our philosophy that parents are ultimately responsible for the teaching and training of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-6). We do not believe parents can delegate that responsibility to us; however, we do believe they give us the privilege to partner with them to teach and train their children.

2.  Excellence in Education

It is fundamental to our philosophy that we provide a learning environment where students are challenged to maximize their potential and achieve to the highest level of their ability.  Teachers provide instruction that is comprehensive, compelling, and creative. The classrooms are places of discovery, and places of scholastically, challenging energy. (Romans 12:2)

3.  Christ-Centered, Biblically-based Education

We believe the Bible contains the foundation for all truth and learning and specifically, the truth about the origins of all of creation. In addition, the Bible contains the truth about Christ, God, the Holy Spirit and the plan of salvation. It is fundamental to our philosophy that we integrate the Bible in every subject, class, fine arts event, athletic opportunities, and every school-sponsored activity. We stand firm and with confidence on the truth of the Scripture. We do not teach from a “neutral” worldview, but from a Christian worldview. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

4.  Enriching Lives

It is fundamental to our philosophy that a student not only needs to learn, but also needs to be loved. The environment in which a student learns best is one that is filled with love, joy, acceptance, and Christ-like concern. We endeavor to create this environment for our students to encourage them to acquire Biblical truth, and apply Biblical truth. (1 John 3:16)
