CALVARY GRACE ACADEMY
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint. Isa 40:31
MISSION AND VISION
At Calvary Grace Academy (CGA) we value education
and higher learning within the context of biblical values.
We are not endeavoring to duplicate the public school system
nor imitate the structure of the traditional private school.
This school has come about from a desire to provide
parents with an alternative to both of these school models.
This includes a 4 day week | Tuesday - Friday
and a shorter school day | 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
We believe that higher learning can be accomplished
within this framework, rather than the traditional
seven-plus-hour school day which is often followed by
30 minutes - 2 hours of homework for elementary-age children.
At this time, the school is not seeking accreditation
or funding from the state. However, CGA uses the
Abeka curriculum from an accredited school
that is based on higher learning standards.
At CGA we believe in combining excellence in education with character training. While we recognize that each student is a unique individual with
their own set of gifts and talents, CGA seeks to instill a sense of personal responsibility in cooperation and consideration for one another.
This begins with the faculty creating an atmosphere of consideration
and cooperation amongst one another which helps the student
develop awareness for others and a desire to follow that model.
We have structured our classrooms in a
way that fosters the development of leadership skills by serving others.
One way we do this is by providing
combined classes when appropriate.
The benefit of this model
is that students learn:
Respect for others
Growth in confidence
The goal is to develop independent learners; students who are not merely spectators in the classroom nor spoon-fed information in order to achieve a test score, but students that are engaged in the process of discovery and are taught to love learning!
The aim in holding grades K5-4th
is to instill a foundational love for reading.
CGA strongly believes that proficiency
in reading is an attainable goal.
Once this seed is planted,
the student’s confidence grows!
This confidence is the foundation by
which children grow to love learning.
Hands-on math and science are
also an important part of this
foundation to inspire curiosity.
When students become aware
that not only is there diversity in
their world, there is also order,
they become better equipped
to become critical thinkers.
Therefore, CGA is dedicated to partnering with parents in laying this foundation
on which each student can build.
It is CGA’s desire to provide an affordable school alternative to parents, therefore tuition is considered on a case-by-case basis for each family.
The tuition amount we ask families to give ranges
from $40.00 – $200.00/month per student.
Prayerfully consider how much your family is able to contribute.
Families that are unable to afford the
minimum are still welcome to enroll their child.
